Brewers Hand Pirates Sixth Straight Loss

The Pittsburgh Pirates are in an absolute freefall to end the 2017 season.  They can’t score runs, they make base-running mistakes, mental errors, and the defense is as unreliable as the offense is unproductive.  The latest team to take advantage of the Pirates inferiority was the Milwaukee Brewers, who shut out the Bucs 3-0 at PNC Park tonight.

Jameson Taillon started for Pittsburgh tonight, giving up two runs on six hits through five innings in a losing effort.  His mound opponent, Brent Suter, bewildered the Pirates, giving up just five hits in five innings of work.

Ryan Braun broke the scoreless tie in the top of the fourth with a solo homerun, his 17th of the season, to left center field.  Neil Walker’s RBI single in the sixth and Travis Shaw’s single in the eighth made it 3...

Brewers Beat Cole, Pirates 5-2

Gerrit Cole took the mound tonight for the Pittsburgh Pirates looking for another solid start on the road. Unfortunately, he ran into some trouble in the early innings, and the Bucs couldn’t muster a comeback as they fell 5-2 to the Milwaukee Brewers tonight at Miller Park.

Cole battled his way through six innings, giving up five runs on seven hits with ten strikeouts and two walks.  His mound opponent, Brent Suter, gave up two runs on three hits in three innings in a spot start for Milwaukee.

A solo homerun by Eric Thames in the bottom of the second inning put the Brewers in front 1-0.  Jordy Mercer’s groundout in the third tied the game and an RBI single by Jordan Luplow later in the inning gave the Bucs a 2-1 advantage.

The Brewers tagged Cole for four runs in the third inning.

Brault, Pirates Blank Brewers

The Pittsburgh Pirates entered their three-game series with the Milwaukee Brewers on a five-game losing streak and struggling in all aspects of the game.  Steven Brault looked to be the stop gap for Pittsburgh and he would have help from his offense in a 7-0 win over Milwaukee.  If the Pirates want finish this season strong, more nights like this would go a long way.

Brault would go on to have the best start of his short Major League career.  He would throw six innings allowing one hit, while striking out six and walking one.  The biggest stat was not allowing a single run.  Brault would even do it with the bat going 2-3 with two RBI and a run scored.  He definitely did it all tonight in leading the charge to victory.

The Buccos would get the offense going immediately in the first in...

Frazier Walks It Off With RBI Single

If the Pittsburgh Pirates want to make a run at the 2017 postseason, they have to win series in the second half of the season.  Pittsburgh had a chance at that today after splitting the first two games of this three-game series with the St. Louis Cardinals.  It took all nine innings, but in the end, it would be the Pirates who came away with the game and the series at PNC Park.

The Buccos struck in the bottom of the first with an Andrew McCutchen RBI single to shallow center field.  Pittsburgh would hold that lead until the fifth when Matt Carpenter plated a run with a double to right.  Max Moroff would strike in the bottom half of the inning with a solo home run to right field.  St. Louis was not down for long, as a single by pitcher Carlos Martinez tied the game once again.
