Bucs catch a break. Martin hits the sure GIDP, but Ramirez throws it away. 1-0 Bucs. Cumpton can hold that, right?

5 K in 2 innings for Cumpton. This is surreal.

Cumpton walked the opposing pitcher. True Pirate already.

The gamecast makes it look like both pitchers have been dealing with a tight strike zone.

I'm simultaneously getting tired of the blimp shots and missing the Pittsburgh girls I dated so I had reason other than games to go up there

Someone explain to me how today is a sell out. It can't be because 35,000+ want to see Blues Traveler. They cant even sell out Mr Smalls which hold like 500 peoples.

Alvarez has made some stellar plays at 3b this year.

It's a weekend game, it's a nice day out, the Dodgers are a pretty good draw. Plus concerts always bring people out no matter who is playing.

#Cumptonmania

There's no way the Pirates can win this game 1-0. I refuse to believe they're going to be able to pull this off.

Well, Cumpton dumped his shutout, and Inge's throw was incredibly weak

I guess yinz are right. I mean ive seen both Steve Miller Band and Smash Mouth for fan jams. Although SMB im sure would still draw a decent crowd.

Well that's the game. Yet another game where a Pirates pitcher is pulled the half inning after he bats.

The only strategy we employ to avoid the DP is the caught stealing.

Snider may suck 90% of the time nowadays, but that 10% he doesn't sure does always seem to be when we need him most.
