No Sweeps

Post by BucFanInPhillyLand »

Once again, with a chance of a series sweep, the Pirates lost today's game against the Nationals. The Pirates have one 2 out of 3 games 14 times this year. 10 of those times, they won the first 2 games of the series but dropped the 3rd game. There were also 2 times when the Bucs won 3 out of 4, and 1 of those times (versus the Marlins) they won the first 3 but lost the final game.

Has any team ever gone an entire year without a sweep?

Interesting. Last year's team was able to sweep the Brewers (and the Cards in a 2 game set). The horrible 2010 team had a few sweeps as well. The 1985 team may qualify. They swept Montreal in a 2 game series but that's it. Similar deal with the 1952 team.

Make that 11 series in which they have won the first two games. Can they get the sweep tomorrow against the Reds?

Here we go again. Won first two against the Marlins. Can they pull off a sweep?

Blown save opportunity. Hopefully, it'll go into extras.

Still no sweeps...Kuhl serves up a dinger to Lewin Diaz. Sigh.

Time is running out. Only two 3-games series left and a 4-game series against the Phillies. Seems unlikely we are going to see a sweep. They have won 18 series this year without a sweep.

Here we go. Pirates win first two against the Reds. Wouldn't it be crazy if they sweep the very last series of the year.

Crazy, yes. But at least it would lay to rest the ignominy of having a full season without a sweep. There's enough to forget about this season. It'd be nice to NOT add another wound to the cadaver of 2021.

Pirates finish the year with 19 series wins, 13 of which the won the first two, and 1 where they won the first three games of the series. Better luck next year Bucs.
