Over the Hump. Bucs WIN

6 9 2 6
3 5 1 4

Great to get a win after those two ugly losses.  Don't have much to say about this game as it wasn't on TV and there's only so much you can glean from a boxscore.

The Duke got the start today instead of Daniel McCutchen, who will start tomorrow.  With his two wins, he's now the leader in the NL.  He had a very solid start today, pitching 6 scoreless innings until giving 2 up in the 7th.  56 of his 99 pitches were strikes.

Bucs got their runs from people other than the usual scorers today.  Homers came from Iwamura and Clement.  Pretty rare.  RBIs also came from Milledge and Cedeno.  Andy LaRoche had a decent outing, going 2 for 4 and scoring a run.

Haren for the Diamondbacks as expected had a lot of Strikeouts (Doumit struck out every time he was at bat), but still gave up 6 over 6.6 innings.  Very encouraging for the Pirates to steal that many from a strong starter like him.

Bucs' record improves to 3-2 and sole possession of 2nd place in the NL Central.  St. Louis has the best record in the division at 4-1.

Hope the Bucs can pull out the series win tomorrow.
