Héctor Giménez pinch hit for Kratz but they go down in order.

Virgil Vasquez will pitch the 9th to try to keep it tied.

Virgil has no chance to stick with the big league team this year. Too much competition. First and second. Zero outs. Two singles off Vazquez.

And Virgil . . . fails.

Three-run walk-off home run by some guy I never heard off. Bye bye Virgil.

The only sad part is that the HR will make the score look like a lot worse than it was ...

Sounds like they might have agreed to call it a tie had it ended 3-3.

The Good: The pitching except for Jackson and Virgil. Clement's defense at first.
The bad: The hitting, Diaz at SS
The ugly: Virgil Vazquez

Good to see baseball again.

and Jackson didn't help his chances earlier either...

Other than pretty solid pitching.

What was up with the Pirates acting like Vasquez was Cy Young or something last year? He never looked good to me, nor were his numbers ever any good.

Hopefully we won't see him in Pittsburgh this year. He may not even make the Indy roster.

The Pirates used 9 pitchers today and I believe six of the nine did not give up a baserunner. In fact, the Pirates did not walk a batter today. That is a nice thing to say.

Ralphie -
I don't remember any comments by anyone remotely indicating that they thought Vasquez resembled Cy Young, would be a Cy Young candidate in the near future or that he was the future of the franchise.

Am I forgetting something?

You know, this strikes me as a keeper in all game descriptions upcoming. It seamlessly blends BuccoBall with eerie music and evicts visuals of Clint shooting the hangman's rope around Russell's neck as he sits on the top of the dugout steps.

Overall I would say there was more good than bad.

One hit (an infield hit at that) by the supposed starting line-up was bad, but I would say it was nicer to see Maholm, Ohlendorf and co. mow down the likes of A-Rod, Jeter & Texiara. Overall, though, pitching and defense (minus Diaz, a given) was stellar. LaRoche, Tabata, and perhaps most importantly Clement, all made fine plays to rob hits.
