Meltdown. Bucs LOSE

6 12 1 7
15 12 0 4


This one hurts.  I'm pretty glad that this one wasn't on TV.

Started out as a decent game, like most losses.  McCutch hit a solo home run in the 3rd, and the Bucs were up 4-2 by the end of the inning.

But then the inning from hell occurred.  Daniel McCutchen, Hayden Penn, and Jack Taschner combined to allow 13 runs in the same inning, tying the Bucs all-time record for most allowed in one inning.  I won't be surprised if Dan McCutchen doesn't get called back up from AAA for a very, very long time.

Arizona was held scoreless after that, but it didn't really matter at that point.  Bobby Crosby hit a fairly meaningless two-run homer in the 9th, but this game was already over long before then.

Very few positive things to take from this game, or this series.  Just have to move on to San Francisco and hope that series can get the Bucs back on track.  Bucs still have 2nd place in the NL Central, albeit it's no longer outright.  Hey, at least we're doing better than Houston, who is a putrid 0-6 so far.  If St. Louis loses to Milwaukee tonight we're only 1 game out of first.
