Announcers actually commented on it looking like the Pirates were swinging for the fences in I think it was the 6th inning

They got it tonight. Colin Moran hit a 3 run blast to break a 3-3 tie in the top of the 10th.

Best defensive game of the season as well. Didnít give Washington anything. To me thatís the key. The pitching is good enough to win 90 games, even with poor hitting, if they just get the outs they should.

Agreed 100%. Their infield has been very disappointing season to date IMO. They maybe miss Mercer's defense more than they would have thought, but most of it is collectable maybe aside from 1b (I just don't see any defensive improvement from Bell).

Frazier is a weak defensive 2B but heís the only MLB caliber leadoff hitter on the roster so he had to play.

Kang has been okay at 3B and I think he just needs at bats to get his timing back. Moran is what he should be. An occasional starter but more importantly a guy you can pick your spot with off the bench.

Gonzalez has been the issue. He was brought in the sure up the defense and heís contributed a few nice plays, that Mercer wouldnít make, but largely has been inconsistent. He must be better.

Archer goes 7 strong and leaves with a 2-1 lead.  Rodriguez gives up back to back homers in the 8th and a win is now looking like a loss.  This bullpen is killing me!

19-105 .181 with RISP. Thatís the bigger problem than the bullpen in my opinion.

Theyíve already lost 3 games this year when leading after 7.  It only happened 3 times all of last year.  Sure they need more offense, but the starters are handing leads to what was supposed to be a strength and the bullpen is failing.

Well if you want to blame somebody in the bullpen, blame Kela. That was a terrible trade. Just like I tried saying last year.

Jason Martin with a 2 out double in the 9th to break a 3-3 tie.  Bucs up 4-3.  Another run would be nice before we need the bullpen to close this one out.

Vasquez with a 2 inning save, loading the bases in the bottom of the 9th with 1 out, then K'ing Hendricks and getting Rendon on a fly out to Marte.

Defensive props to Cervelli for getting a 2-6-4 DP on a sac bunt that was just off the plate. Beautifully executed, strike to Gonzales, then to Frazier for the 2nd out at 1st.

Vazquez actually came in a tie game so he got the win. Hurdle avoided both Rodriguez and Kela which means Searage must be working with both on something. Hurdle doesnít ordinarily deviate from his routine bullpen management.

Best win of the season to date in my mind. Beating Scherzer.

Marte and Cervelli continue to struggle mightily though. Gotta get those guys hitting a little.
