Baker wants him to throw 172 pitches in a game tomorrow. He feels that blowing out elbow ligaments is something that he can generously give position players as well at pitchers.

The official box score on MLB.com has Lewis starting in RF for the Reds.

When things are going bad...

Walker places a hit right on the line down the first base line and the ball takes the perfect bounce off the stands that stick out. Legend can't score and the Bucs strand two.

Sigh!

It seems like this agressive approach or "power swing" theory isn't working for Cutch and Tabata very well. Maybe Hurdle needs to change this to the "Willie Mays Hayes" strategy and make these dudes hit it on the ground. It pains me to see Cutch keep hitting lazy fly balls.

Don't start walking people Charlie with a three-run lead.

Nice to see Pedro put a good swing on a good pitch to hit and ride it out of the park for a home run.

Bench Overbay tomorrow for not hustling on that ball. there is no excuse on why he should have not been at 3rd base. Im 240 pounds and I could have been standing on 3rd.

CHARLIE MORTON -- that's what I'm talk'en 'bout. WOW -- that's what they meant last season when they kept saying that he has great stuff as he continued to get pounded.

It'd be tough to leave off Hanrahan too. Morton and Hammer have been amazing this season.

Watched the first 7 innings at work. Charlie was Charlie ... which is now absolutely great news. Give up a walk or a single? So freaking what. Ground ball, double play, NEXT BATTER!!

As soon as Alvarez hit the ball, I thought, "This game belongs to the Pirates." The McCutchen HR removed any doubt.

Morton is a joy to watch nowadays. This game showed why Earl Weaver had it right - a 3-run home run and good pitching = wins.
