It took a weird carom off of one of the archways in right field. Just one of those things.

I have no idea. I could have ran him down from here in Rochester. I'm just watching the Gameday graphics...

Not watching so cannot comment, but giving up 4 in the 2nd. The game that is gone, I wager. When is the last time the Pirates rallied from a big deficit?

Oh well. Pedro, Tatata, Lincoln, etc. are on their way. I guess.

So much for Charlie keeping the Giants off the scoreboard.

Not saying today is the day, but it's time some of these guys learn to creep back into games like this.

I've been on the phone all afternoon but I've got the game on with the sound down.

Charlie is for the most part throwing pretty well but he keeps getting his fastball down the middle and it is getting hammered. His fastball tails in to righthanders and it's pretty easy to hit. He needs to either hit the outside corner or bust them in on the hands and he is not doing that. Plus he is not mixing in enough other pitches and not locating them well when he does.

More of the same. Good stuff but not good results. The other guy on the other hand is locating his stuff really well and putting up zeroes even though he is 3-4 mph slower.

Just got back to see that. Doumit has left 5 on. Could have been back in the game with one swing.

No kidding.

I've never been sold on Doumit and I don't think I ever will be.

Ever notice his picture on the live gameday screen? He looks dazed, like he took a rock to the head.

Not soon enough. Doumit's bat is the reason he is in the majors, and his hitting has been very mediocre for more than a season.

Man is Jonathan Sanchez the real deal...

Don't get me wrong: I like Alderson, but I really wish the Bucs had somehow gotten Sanchez.

Tough and ugly loss.

Only three hits, Morton got shelled in the deciding inning, the Huff Inside the parker (!)...

Bucs have problems playing back-to-back good games. Could rack it up to night/day games in this case, or their youth.

But all said, I think this is what was expected against the great pitching staff of the Giants.

Even though there is [obvious] room for improvement, I'll not lose sleep over this loss. I'll be more worried if the lack of offense continues against lesser pitching staffs.

Opposite coast day games following night games are tough. But it still looked like a pretty weak effort. Three hits...ouch.

Lastings had two hits today, so there's something to be happy about, but he outdid himself by seeing 9 pitches in 4 at bats today.

If Pirate fans lost sleep over ugly losses, they would look like the alpha to Rip Van Winkle's omega.
