The Church of Jones and Doumit. Bucs WIN


Things started slow with the Pirates giving up 2 in the 1st and it seemed like it was going to be one of those days.


But then The Duke struck out Loney to end the half. It was all over for LA after that. They never led again.


Garrett effin Jones. Into the Allegheny it goes.


Dodgers were able to get one hit but otherwise couldn't beat Duke, who had a very solid game.

The LA joke catcher Martin can't pick up the ball on a Duke bunt, which allowed Duke to reach and runners advance, but the Bucs can't do anything with it.

More of the Duke. Manny "women's fertility drug" Ramirez gets a meaningless double. Duke kills that by taking care of Kemp.

Garrett Jones decides he's getting bored with this tie and breaks out his homer machine one more time.


Only the 6th Pirate in opening day history to hit two home runs.

Duke decides to change it up and allow the Dodgers to get two hits in the 4th. What a tease. Shut down.

Ronny Cedeño stole a base in an otherwise uneventful half.

Previously mentioned joke Martin decides to wander off second base when a Manny grounder is hit to Cedeño. Rundown commences.

Tag, you're a jobber.

In the bottom of the fifth the floodgates opened. Cutch was hit by a pitch, and then stole second. Garrett Jones's grounder to first moves Cutch to third. Then Doumit walked. Lastings Milledge hits a GRD to score Cutch. Clement is walked intentionally. Bases are juiced, but The Duke is up. So JR makes the decision to pinch-hit Ryan Church.

Everybody come home.

Cedeño drives in Church.


The bullpen circus started in this inning. Taschner came in to pitch .6 of an inning, and is replaced by Carasco for the remaining .3. Still, no worries at this point.

Pirates go down in order for the only time in the game.

Dodgers try to rally, scoring 2. Carasco is replaced by Meek. He lets in another run.


Clement reachs on another Dodgers error, but otherwise nothing interesting.

Veteran Brendan Donnelly gets the nod for this inning. He takes care of business.

Then Doumit decides to kill the Dodgers dreams. 3-run homer.


New closer Octavio Dotel comes in. Takes them down in order, with one K.

Pop the champagne, raise the jolly roger, the Bucs are in 1st place.
