8/11 vs SF

1. Corey Dickerson (L) LF
2. Starling Marte (R) CF
3. Gregory Polanco (L) RF
4. David Freese (R) 3B
5. Francisco Cervelli (R) C
6. Josh Bell (S) 1B
7. Josh Harrison (R) 2B
8. Jordy Mercer (R) SS
9. Trevor Williams (R) P

Will they try to win tonight? You never know. Frazier is out. Once again Hurdle rewards a player who's hitting well by allowing him to sit on the bench.

Bell with a 3-run shot.

He looks so much more comfortable at the plate compared to early this year.

josh Bell with a 3 run HR!

4-0

David Freese was on 1st due to pure hustle, beating out an infield hit.  Guy’s a winner.

Solid win tonight and bounce back from last night. As I pointed out last night a win tonight guaranteed the Pirates pick up 1 full game and would be 4 games out and that is exactly what happened tonight. The DBacks and Dodgers both lose tonight as well so the Pirates are 3 back of both of them, and a 1.5 behind both the Cards and Rockies. So this will set up yet another big Sunday afternoon game with an opportuinity to cut the wildcard lead down to 3 games with a win and a Brewers win over the Braves. Kela threw 9 pitches and Vazquez threw 11 pitches so both of them should definitely be available tomorrow along with Crick,Santana, and Rodriguez. So let’s get this one tomorrow and make this a 5-2 trip heading into Minnesota with both Jamo and Archer on the mound in those games.

Quick other stat the Pirates are now 52-18 on the season when they score 4 or more runs. So getting 4 runs out of this offense usually equals a win for this Pirates team which is impressive.

They are doing a lot better on this road trip than I ever thought they would. I'm amazed. I don't care how the other teams are doing in general, Colorado and San Francisco are difficult places to play.

Today’s game will also be the 5th time since July 25th that the Pirates will attempt to try and go 5 games over .500. Each time they tried to do it on July 25th,August 1st,August 4th, and the other day August 10th they have lost. So hopefully today is finally the day they overcome that and finally get over that hump. Big game today again. Chance to take 3 of 4 in this series, chance to end the week at 5-2 out West and a chance to pull within 3 games of the Braves for the 2nd wildcard if the Brewers can beat them today. So good opportunity for a lot of good things to happen. Hopefully Hurdle as usual won’t screw it up.

And S-Rod will be in there somewhere.  You know gotta give not just the starters but the 2nd team players a rest and the 3rd teamers some at bats to stay sharp!
  

It's A Great Day for Bucco Baseball

Believe it or Not!  In 1959 the Pirates almost traded Dick Groat for Roger Maris.
