Trolley job. Bucs LOSE

3 7 0 7
9 12 0 10

This game didn't even attempt to tease you into thinking the Pirates had a shot at winning.  At the end of the 1st inning, you knew it was over.


Really nothing interesting to talk about in this one.  No homers for the Bucs, Garrett Jones and McCutch were pretty much invisible, and you could tell why Burres was picked in the 31st round of the draft.  Once again, a Pirates pitcher fails to go at least 6 innings.  Had Ohlendorf been the starter, it's possible this game's outcome would be different.  The one thing I can say is that Aki Iwamura and Ronny Cedeno have been surprisingly decent pickups by the management.  They had the only RBIs for the Pirates in this game.

And so here we are.  One game under .500.  Didn't take too long.  Of course, expectations weren't that high coming in.  Still early in the year though.  The season is 162 games long.  It remains to be seen what will happen.
