For the second night in a row, the Bucs tried to hold on to a 1 run lead and couldn't do it. When you play a hot bat team like the Cardinals, a one run lead is never enough. The way to beat them is to score big on them. The Pirates had their chances in this game, including two bases loaded situations which only amounted to 1 run. Ronny Cedeno killed both of those chances. I like Ronny for his defense most nights, but when he slumps, he REALLY slumps. I'd like to see d'Anaud in the lineup for today's game to try and wake Cedeno up a little. Veras took the loss in this game after a 2-run Beakman homer, while J-Mac, who had been looking for the win, got a No Decision instead. Cutch went 3 for 4 with an RBI.
