Walk-off. Bucs LOSE

3 9 2 6
4 13 0 11

Tough loss as some major blunders probably cost the Bucs a win.  With the score 2-1 Pirates in the bottom of the 7th (helped out by Garrett Jones's 9th homer of the year in the 4th; he went 2 for 4 on the day with 2 runs), 1 out, and runners at the corners, Evan Meek inexplicably runs to tag the guy at 3rd instead of throwing to second for an incredibly easy double play.  This puts guys on 1st and 2nd instead of putting the Pirates in the dugout.  One play later, Meek makes a tough throw on a grounder to 1st which Doumit still should have caught, but instead it goes past his glove and 2 runs score.  Jose Tabata is able to score in the next inning to tie it after some nifty baserunning and a Neil Walker single.  In the 10th inning the Pirates for some reason decide to put Donnelly in, who promptly gives up the game-winning home run. Sigh.  This one should have been ours.  But that's the Pirates for you.
