Bad starting pitching, giving up runs early in the game, bad defensive decisions, offense shutting down.....recipe for disaster.

I don't like this trend at all. The Pirates better fix this and fix it fast or they will be out of the playoff race before September. :roll:

God, this is ugly.

Looking at our last 13 games (I'm cherry-picking I know just because the numbers seem so bad) we have gone 5-8, and through 3 innings today, we've been outscored 63-48. It just seems worse than that, so many big innings, so many first inning HRs offered up.

At least Walker is swinging the bat and producing again.

Yeah. And Bedard doing what he can: doubling and scoring to help his (lost) cause...

I'm not watching the game, just checking in on ESPN... What the heck happened to get Maybin to 3rd :o on Barmes' error. Where did that ball go?

Playing small ball: a walk, an error and a single loads the bases for McHenry with no outs.

Now is the time for him to build his legend....

Edit: And he walked!!! I love it.

Now, if Barmes can make up for his error....

Bedard gets on base, again, scores.

Walker gets his third hit of the game.

McCutchen doubles them home and then Jones hits a triple.

An eight run inning where we hit for the cycle and it's still going on....


Edit: really neat function, that I haven't seen on a message board before, that notifies you if a post is made while you're typing out your post. I've moderated two message boards and am active on a third, and never seen this functionality. If this is a mod-enabled option, Kudos.

Bedard, if he can get out of this inning, is coming up to bat next inning. Given that he's scored twice, I'd be tempted to let him hit :D
