Another horrible display by the Pirates “offense”.

They get another stellar pitching performance and the offense does next to nothing.

Guy at second in the 10th with the top of the order coming up. And they can’t even advance the runner to third.

I pray Tsutsugo never gets another AB for the Pirates ever again. 1 HR out of your first baseman, almost 2 months into the season is ridiculous.

The good news is the pitching is there if they use them correctly. However, the offense is so bad it really doesn’t matter.

Pirates vs Rockies 5-25-22 Rubber match

Rockies 4 Pirates 0 after 2 1/2

4 Runs might be enough for the Rockies to win this game.

Not a good start at all by Thompson. These poor pitchers must pitch with so much stress on them, knowing if they give up a couple runs the game is more than likely over.

At least the Pirates didn’t wait until the 5th inning this game to collect a hit.

Come on offense WAKE up already!!

A little life from the Pirates offense in the bottom half of the 3rd.

4-2 Rockies after 3 complete

Hang on to your hats Keller is in to pitch for the Pirates. In other words batting practice for the Rockies.

The Pitt vs Louisville ACC tourney game is terrific.

5-5 Heading to the 9th

Pitt needs to win the tournament in order to get into the NCAA tournament.

Maybe the committee let’s them in if they make the chip, since they shafted them last year.

2/3 of the Rockies bottom half of the order hit Keller like a piñata, Keller gets Conner Joe to GIDP to get out of the mess.

Still 4-2 Bucs coming to the plate.

My apologies for posting Pitt baseball in the game thread.

I didn’t want to jump around and post in a separate thread.

And now the Pirates offense has shown some more life today, Jack Swack just hit a 3 run tater.

5-5 After 6

It’s an offensive explosion at PNC

Bucs score 4 in the bottom of the 7th

9-5 after 7

The offense seems to click a little bit better without Tsutsugo mucking things up in the middle of the lineup.

No reason Chavis shouldn’t be in the lineup everyday. I don’t care about righty/lefty matchups. Put your best hitters in the lineup.

A pair of two-out three-run homers. A rarity in these parts. Earl Weaver would be proud.

Peters wiggles out of a self made mess in the 6th.

Still knotted at 1 through 6.

What a pleasant surprise to wake up and see the Pirates came back to beat the Padres 4-2 on a Hayes 3 run blast in the 9th.

RAISE IT!!!
