Here's the inning that has to happen to the Pirates when they're in Milwaukee.

Locke's line so far: 6 innings, 2 H, 6 BB(!), 0 K, 2 ER. May 2013 Locke is working tonight.

Harrison couldn't find the bag on a force out at third and ARam looked like he slid in ahead of Harrison's foot, but he was called out.

Milwaukee challenged the call, but the call stayed an out.

If he had been called safe, the bases would have been loaded and since it's Milwaukee, a grand slam likely would have followed.

Harrison just needs to put off his inevitable return to earth for a little while longer...

Not sure I'd trust him in a close game but Axford hasn't been too bad for us so far.

His control problems scare me. He's an upgrade over Frieri/Pimentel though in middle innings.

Let's not damn him with faint praise. He's had one really bad outing in the last 12 or 13 games and he's a serviceable arm for middle work. Now, watch him blow up after I said that.

Wilson really wants Melancon to have to enter the game. How hard is it to throw strikes with a 5 run lead?

Good start to the series. Hope they have some runs left for the next two games.

Walk in the park win despite the number of walks. Don't get many of those in Milwaukee.

Raise it and get some more this weekend!

If you would have told me Jeff Locke walked six, and we didn't get our first K til the 8th, I would have guessed they put up a twenty spot on us. Those weird things don't usually happen in our favor at Miller Park, maybe the curse is reversing.
