I also liked seeing Rodolfo Castro place a bunt single towards third base. I saw him do that in Indy 5 or 6 weeks ago.

If you didn't see the game, Marcano put on quite a show playing second base. He was often playing deep covering a lot of ground making good throws.

Brewers get 3 in the third on 4 hits a BB and of course the Pirates committed yet another error.

3-0 Bad dudes after 3

Pirates have now committed 87 errors on the season. Fielding percentage is an awful .979.

For perspective all other teams in the majors have a fielding percentage between .983 and .989

I can’t think of one thing this team does well.

Bad base running, can’t bunt, can’t field, pitching is near the bottom of every statistical category, can’t hit, etc….

Triples…. They are good at hitting triples, last I checked they were 5th in the league in triples.

CRUZ!!!

Bucs take the lead on 4 consecutive hits capped by a 3 run blast from Cruz.

4-3 good guys

Still only 1 out in the top of the 5th.

Crowe blows yet another lead

Second pitch of the game from him and he gives up a game tying 2 run homer.

I personally have no confidence left in the guy.

I think it was the right move by Shelton, It just didn’t work out.

5-5 after 8 1/2

Wow what a pathetic performance by Crowe tonight.

1/3 IP 3 Runs 3 ER 2 homers given up

Pirates had a 90% chance of a win before Crowe entered the game.

7-5 Brewers final on a two run walk off homer.
