You're the third catcher on this team. You get a chance to tie the game, show a little spark, make a name for yourself by trucking the opposing catcher on a play where the throw beats you by a mile, and you try to slide around him. That's not the kind of heart I'm looking for.

Hate it when Tabata swung at the first pitch - just really hate it!! Other team on the ropes....rattled....and Tabata swings at the first pitch. My dad, bless his soul, also hated it when Pirate hitters swung at the first pitch!!

You dont know how happy I am with that win. They can frustrate you constantly, but then they score 2 in the 9th, and then Cedeno throws one into right field and then the next pitch a slow ground ball to Cedeno who redeems himself. Good turn by Walker and great hustle by him as well.

Ronny Cedeno ugh. That was a really ugly error. That was one of those reasons people laugh at the Pirates, because they do shit like that. Reallllllly lucky they were able to get Byrd there, thought for sure he'd beat that out.

Would have liked to see a more impressive hit by Pedro to win it, that play was more so Neil Walker's than Pedro's. Just glad he made contact and didn't K against a tough K pitcher in Marmol.

If Cedeno can keep hitting the ball into the opposite field on a consistent basis, then hell be fine, but every time a ball goes near him, I just hope he can make the play.

They keep this up we'll be calling them the Heart Attack Kids or something like that. First road series win since last July. OK, it was against the Cubs, but still...

Didn't we have a great record against the Cubs last year, too? We hit Matt Garza around at least, even though he K'd us 12 times. You figure you're out your best hitter in Cutch, and you still put up 16 hits (even if they were singles), against a good starting pitcher and a very good closer, that's a solid day.

Give some props to Michael Crotta, he looked excellent. And Hanrahan, who was hung out to dry by Cedeno. That was no easy task to get two DP balls in consecutive at bats.

Yes, Ollie, but imagine the grief that would have been directed at Leyva by, oh, say, Bob Smizik if Walker had been out at home.

Bob Smiz...? Who? Sorry, started to throw up in my mouth a little bit trying to say that name. It does sort of rhyme with vomit, doesn't it?

You gotta think Walker was hustling all the way or he'd have never been given the opportunity to score on that play. Whoever was responsible, they should get a star on his cap today. The rest of the organizations' SS must be really horrible if that is truly our best option. That was a ROUTINE play that 12 year olds will make most of the time. Damn...I haven't yelled that loudly in a long time.
