Am I right in saying that the more pitchers a team throws, the more likely you will have at least one pitcher not have his stuff that day?

For sure Peters for GOAT.

Not sure why Shelton thinks he can be used as a starter and a reliever.

Thompson was cruising and could have pitched the 6th.

Finish the game with Banda, Stratton, and Bednar.

It looks like a Pirates starter will finally get in the win column tonight.

Bucs 5 Dodgers 0

SUWINSKI getting into the act with his first career homer.

Bucs with 15 hits tonight coming against a very good pitcher.

Perez with his second homer of the season as well, they might have to keep him up if he continues to hit like this.

Have to give props to Shelton as well, he stuck with Quintana for the 6th. Rather than pulling him after 5, like he did Thompson yesterday. It is not in his nature to keep the starter out there with a skinny lead after the 5th.

Got to give credit to the umpire behind the plate. They have been consistent tonight after that awful Tsutsugo strikeout call earlier. Even he maybe realized how bad of a call it was :lol:

Hey Stratton. Stop walking the leadoff hitter with a 3-0 lead.

9 Outs away from taking 2 of 3 from the Dodgers and Stratton and the defense decide to have a meltdown.

Hopefully Crowe can shut them down

Crowe wiggles out of an absolute mess in the 7th.

6 Solid innings of pitching and it all gets wasted by 1 inning.

3 Runs on 1 hit 4 walks and 1 Pirate error and we are back to square 1.
