Oh look, Walker hits into a double play. What a shock.

Every Pirate hit the ball hard that inning. I don't know if that's a good sign or a bad sign that this will be one of those games where they invent ways to not score.

21% of the Pirates 56 double plays have come off the bat of Neil Walker. Surprisingly, 22 other teams have hit into more DPs than us.

So you mean we're complaining about something that isn't really a problem?

That would appear to be the case. But it's clearly not out of character for us is it?

Not sure what Mercer could have done there, but yet another Pirate runner wiped out. Bucs take the lead in the process though.

Liriano walks the leadoff man. It's like he wants to stress me out.

Just barely got in before the tag. Good eye, ump.

Live I thought Marte was out. Very fortunate the ump was paying attention and didn't call him out just due to the throw beating him.

Tie game, Walker triples home Marte. 6 hits already. Keep hitting Samardwhatever before he settles down.

Wow! Nice, Walker!

The Domer is giving the Bucs goodness to hit.

He got a little better result on that hard hit. I'd like to see Cutch clock one here.

Right. Even though the MLBN replay showed it was a good call, I still came away with feeling we got a break there.

Are we going to see Daydro today?

In other news, it was nice to wake up to the news that the Angels came back on the Cards last night.

WTF was Navarro doing?

You never try to throw the guy out at 2nd with runners on 1st and 3rd.

If he makes a good throw the inning is over but I agree with you.

When was the last time a Pirate stole home?

I've seen a move that involves the SS coming up between the pitchers mound and second base, cutting the ball off and rocketing it back to the plate, just to catch the runner from third.

But normally, yeah, no a high percentage play.

Really nice bunt by Liriano there. Good day at the plate so far.

Jones with a triple. Got about 98% of the ball. Would be nice if Pedro could come out of El Blimpo mode for this at-bat.
