Hey, a Pirates batter took a walk. Sound the gong.

Tie game. Jones with a sacrifice fly. Weird to see a Pirates team consistently scoring early in the game.

Hey look, El Blimpo gets a chance to end the inning here with 2 on and a chance to break the game open.

You know things are going badly for a hitter when Uggla makes a good defensive play.

After the Pirates tie the game, Locke is back in trouble. Once again, a starting pitcher is telling the offense not to bother scoring runs.

Good news- Russell Martin is still alive. 2-1 Bucs.

Ugh, Hopeless is down to batting .100...even Martin passed him....Pedro is still envious of Barmes though.

Odds Locke gives up the lead this inning?

So Hurdle wants Grilli to pitch regularly, but won't think of using him in a close game before the 9th inning because he's the closer. I think Hurdle was put on this earth to confound me.

And the lead is gone because Jeff Locke stinks.

Don't look now but Travis Snider is actually turning into a decent hitter.

Runners on 1st and 2nd, 1 out, Walker and Blimporozov due up. Hope Walker does something good.

It wouldn't, if Locke could retire the pitcher, but he can't so expect another run.

If we just had average 3rd and 4th starters, this team could be decent.

It's not like the guy hit a rope into the outfield. A bit of bad luck and a bit of Locke not being very good at fielding his position.
