  1. TS says:

    Good to see that CH has the best lineup out there. (insert sarcasm)

  2. TS says:

    With Lincoln out there this could get very ugly. Like an instant replay of Game 1.

  3. leefoo says:

    Well, there goes our best chance of winning a game. Once Karstens left, it was over.

    Game 2 is a giveaway.

  4. hsages211 says:

    OK. I’ve got a good feeling about this game. We’ve lost to the Brewers almost every way possible. The laws of averages are with us. Either that….or Brad Lincoln throws a no-hitter and we lose 1-0 on a wild pitch.

  5. Steve Smith says:

    Second pitch of the game and already – game over if this offense doesn’t show up and if Lincoln can’t get anybody out.

  6. hsages211 says:

    Guess I jinxed the no-no a little early, huh?

  7. Radio wave says:

    At least they’re fighting back.

  8. Keith says:

    Just your typical 5-4-5-4-2-5-1 double play.

  9. Dejan Kovacevic says:

    @HS: The law of averages in this equation was blown out long, long ago.

  10. Steve Smith says:

    Not only do we let the opposing pitchers hit like all-stars, we pitch to them like they are #4 hitters.

  11. Steve Smith says:

    There you go J Hay!! Way to get it done after some poor bunt attempts.

  12. Steve Smith says:

    These are the chances the Bucs REALLY need to cash in on against the Brewers.

  13. Steve Smith says:

    Let’s break this thing open big time now. Take advantage!!!

  14. Jay G -Jacksonville FL via New Castle says:

    Diaz with a bit of hustle…….way to go…….Jose!!!………nice……!!!

  15. Steve Smith says:

    Thank you Cryin!!

  16. Steve Smith says:

    How about #2 on the night Douy!

  17. Bunch of fair weather fans... says:

    The Pirates got a few Brewer bounces.

  18. TS says:

    Good showing in the night game. And a bonus that hotdog Morgan got a little plunkie on his little knee. ‘Bout time.

  19. Pig Legs Robinson says:

    Nice pitching by Leroux to close down the Brewers offense. He has a future here, it would seem.

  20. Bunch of fair weather fans... says:

    Brad Lincoln earned himself another start. And it was like Lady Luck forgot which team she was rooting for tonight.

    *Knock on [Brandon] Wood*

  21. diehard says:

    Any previous game against the Brewers, and Walker either throws and hits the ump, or trips over him, and Fielder scores. With his artful dodge there, I was pretty sure we were winning this one!
    We’ve got a hold of the monkey, now let’s throw it off our back and stomp on it!!!!
