Blowout. Bucs LOSE

1 8 2 7
11 15 1 11

I don't know which is more painful to watch: the Pirates losing 1-0 in extra innings, or being spanked 11-1. Especially when it appears that our bullpen is falling apart at the seams.

Dan McCutchen pitched a pretty poor game, but managed to escape with 5.2 IP, 6 H, 4 R / 3 ER, 1 K, and 1 HR. He allowed 6 walks though, which is pretty terrible. Still not sure how exactly he is better than Brad Lincoln. Sean Gallagher and Wil Ledezma were awful in relief, Ledezma alone giving up 5 runs in just 0.1 IP, raising his ERA to a ludicrous 27.00.

The Pirates' bats were silent again for the most part, but Andrew McCutchen and Jose Tabata had pretty nice days. McCutchen went 2 for 4 with a double, and Jose Tabata went 3 for 4, raising his hitting streak to 11 games. Jeff Clement hit a home run as a pinch-hitter to score the Buccos' only run.

The Bucs will try to avoid the sweep in a Sunday afternoon game.
