Or 5-3 or F-8, etc, etc. I just don't understand the approach at the plate. Tabata tries to pull outside pitches. Cutch tries to pull outside pitches. McGehee tries to pull outside pitches. Uuuuuuugh.

And Barajas pulls an outside pitch for a looping single.

So the game would be tied if anyone besides Barajas had been on base for that Barmes double. Instead we get a 2 out Correia AB.

If the Pirates lose tonight, blame Clint Hurdle for not bunting Walker in the 7th with guys on 1st and 2nd with nobody out and a patient, solid contact hitter coming up in Navarro who hit the ball to the wall.

It was so frustrating but thank God we won.

It seems so simple. Don't swing at pitches below your knees, and take the pitch on the outside corner to right field. That's all Moyer has is the fact that he can put the ball on the outside corner at the knees. McGehee did well because he just stood there and took his walks. Barajas looked especially inept up there.

I also heard the staggering statistic recently that Moyer has faced 9% of all MLB batters.

I heard that as well, and that may well be the most incredible statistic I've every heard.
