I'm guessing it is still part of monitoring his workload.

With the win today the Pirates improve to 55-88 overall and 27-45 on the road. Almost guaranteeing that they will not finish the season with the worst road record in the majors, (Rockies are 21-47 on the road).

The win also officially knocks the Reds out of playoff contention.

Run differential now sits at -199 on the season, only the Nationals have a worse - run differential at -207.

The Pirates also leapfrog the Marlins in runs scored on the season. The Marlins, Tigers, and A’s are the three teams that have scored less runs.

The road schedule the rest of the way is nothing but brutal: 4 at Mets, 2 at Yankees, and 3 at hAted cArds.

Home schedule is much more favorable: 4 Vs Cubs, 3 Vs Reds, and 3 Vs Cards. Maybe Pujols hits #700 in Pittsburgh.

I actually drove to that game and for once bought nice seats to the game to watch Contreras pitch. I had no idea he was on a pitch count and it would be that low of a pitch count. He did a nice job of pitching to contract (especially his 6 pitch first inning). They should have at least rewarded the guy by letting him go the 5th and get the win.

Not in love with the strike zone tonight, Brubaker is getting squeezed and Carrasco is getting strikes called 2-3 inches off the plate.

Come on blue get your head in the game.

Brubaker is getting jobbed tonight, and frankly that is on the Pirates staff. Ump is giving you 2-3 inches on one side of the plate and squeezing the other side. You need to communicate that with starting pitcher.

Mets get 2 in the first to take a 2-0 lead. Brubaker had Vogelbach struck out twice, before he deposited the double to right center.

Home plate ump is at least being consistent, neither pitcher is getting the inside corner called strikes on lefties.

Brubaker just struck out Vogelbach again, but the ump squeezed him again.

Well that inning blew

Mets bat around, score 3 runs, leave the bases loaded.

5-1 Mets

Brubaker 71 pitches through 3 innings. He is more likely done for the night.
