Recap: All Access. BUCS LOSE.

The Bucs tried to rally all game, but it always seemed to fall short. Whether it was tying the score but being unable to take the lead, or leaving the bases loaded and not plating anyone, or the numerous baserunning blunders on the night, to the first time all year that Joel Hanrahan has been pulled in the middle of an inning all season, the Bucs just didn't deserve to win this game. Jeff Karstens lasted just 4.1 innings, giving up 4 ER over that time. I guess it might have been a precautionary measure as he had just returned from injury, but still I would have liked to see him throw more than 68 pitches. On the plus side, the Pirates got big blasts from Derrek Lee (who continues to stay hot) and Andrew McCutchen (a 2-run homer). Doumit also hit a rare triple. The Bucs will try to take the series in a day game today.
