News updates are on our Pirates page. Rob Biertempfel will cover the game.


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

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

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

    Game 2 is a giveaway.

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

  7. At least they’re fighting back.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  15. Thank you Cryin!!

  16. How about #2 on the night Douy!

  17. The Pirates got a few Brewer bounces.

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

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

  20. 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. 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!!!!
