Return of the terrible bullpen. Bucs LOSE

4 9 1 5
14 17 2 8

Once again the 6-9 spots did nothing in the hitting department.  This after hitting well the past few games all the way through the order.  Neil Walker went 3 for 4 and hit a home run, but had to leave the game after colliding with Ryan Church while chasing a foul ball.  No word on his status, although it's unlikely that he'll be able to play tonight.  Garrett Jones and Ryan Doumit both went 2 for 4, and Andrew McCutchen ended his hitless streak which had been going since the Cleveland series.  Brad Lincoln was sub-par, giving up 5 runs, 3 earned, but the real story was the absolutely terrible bullpen.  4 pitchers came in relief of Brad Lincoln, and not one of them left with less than 2 earned runs (DJ Carrasco gave up 3).  Not sure what happened to our formerly excellent pen, but it needs to turn around in a hurry to make these games even watchable in the late innings.
