Grand Slam by Pedro...great job! Pirates 4 Cards 0

I guess we have an offense now. That's wonderful. Question is (at least for me) is how long will these bats collectively stay hot? Or, will the bats stay hot consistently long enough to carry us through to the end of the season?

I hope it does because it's sure fun to watch. Reminds me of the 70's Lumber Company Pirates.

We hit well down the stretch then we have a shot. If Barmes & Tabata/ Presley could pick it up, look out.

I say bring Marte up while the offense is going good so he doesn't feel any added pressure to "spark" the offense....and more importantly get that lump Tabata outta there!!

Presley has been hitting better since he was called back up. For the month of June (not including today's game) he is hitting .259 with a .796 OPS. 10 extra base hits and 4 steals (5 if you don't count today), so power and speed have been part of the equation. I think you keep Presley in the lineup while he is hitting better.

Karstens is dealing right now, what a shot in the arm to get him back in the rotation. Heading to the 7th, put 'em away Buccos!

Presley is such a smart player. Infield in so he got a HUGE lead off third and then slid to outside of the plate so catcher would have to reach for a tag. His excellent speed didn't hurt either. :D

Early in the game I thought we would be good to get 5 out of Karstens but he found a nice groove. Did a nice job. 8-) 8-) 8-)

Third four-game win streak of the season.

2011 Buccos had three all year (all by July, too).

No help at all from the Giants. Down 2-0 in the 8th and being 1-hit.

Dang.

Still, looking at their July slate, it looks like they will require more energy to keep pace with the Bucs!

@SFG
@LAD 3x
@ SDP 4x
STL 3x
AZ 4x
MIL 3x
@ HOU 3x
@ COL 3x
SDP 2x

Even with the ASB, that road trip may take it's toll... especially when they face the Cards right after...
