Final: Pirates 4, Giants 1


Looking ahead to first pitch …

Game: Pirates (2-6) vs. San Francisco Giants (4-4)

Time: 4:05 p.m.

Site: AT&T Park, San Francisco

TV, radio: Root Sports, 93.7 The Fan

Here is the live box score. Karen Price is missing the homeless chess tournament for this.

And here is the Pirates’ lineup …

  1. Alex Presley, LF
  2. Jose Tabata, RF
  3. Andrew McCutchen, CF
  4. Garrett Jones, 1B
  5. Neil Walker, 2B
  6. Pedro Alvarez, 3B
  7. Clint Barmes, SS
  8. Michael McKenry, C
  9. Kevin Correia, RHP


  1. What do you do if the Giants come calling on Hanrahan?

  2. @andy

    Ask for the whole store

  3. Some experts felt that Romo was already better than Wilson, so I doubt they will come for Hanny.

    Plus our trades w. the G-men are usually busts for us and home runs for them: see Sanchez & Lopez.

    DK: Romo’s stuff is just ridiculous.

  4. @JMB

    Let’s not forget the Jason Schmidt and John Vander Wal for Armando Rios and Ryan Vogelsong trade. That one still pisses off my old man.

  5. Over / Under on Pay-dro K’s today. I’m setting the line at 2.5
    Place your wagers……

  6. Yeah, 2012, I think Jason Schmidt still has the most victories by a Giant at AT & T.

  7. Wait – isn’t Ryan Vogelsong a great pitcher? Doesn’t that make the trade equal?

    I got $20 on Pedro’s under

  8. Don’t get sending down Hague. Do we not need hits?

  9. Any other park and that was a solo shot for Cutch…just the way the season is going thus far

  10. If Correia puts in another strong start could have interesting dilemma with Burnett close to joining the team…could Neal shop a SP for a much needed bat?

  11. The Legend of the solo homer continues!! Nice to see Jones get a hold of one.

  12. GI Jones with the blast! Walker with another hit now it’s time for you Pedro!

  13. aaaaaand Pay-dro gets his first K of the day.

  14. Or not…@ Playoffs is it too late to take the over?

  15. All action must be in before the first at bat. :)

  16. Gotta love it. The smallest of the smallest of small ball.

  17. A lot of talk has been made about Tabata and his team friendly deal…if we don’t start seeing a little more it may not even be team friendly. Nice to have some speed on this team since we have to play small ball.

  18. Nice to see KC pick up where he left off last year with throwing on the road!

  19. Can not hit them much harder if your Alvarez or Barmes…when you are struggling sometimes it must feel like there are more than nine guys in the field.

  20. Good gosh that wasn’t close at second…horrible call runge

  21. Why can’t Pay-dro be more like Sandoval?

  22. Why can’t Barmes field? nice work correia to get four outs!

  23. Is there an easier out in the NL right now than Pedro?

  24. @Pattonbb

    Just think of an inning that is Pay-dro then Barajas then Barmes. BRUTAL

  25. Great squeeze by the JHay kid! McGehee needs to become the everyday third baseman.


  27. Only Bitter Pirate fans would be looking for negatives while the Pirates are dominating the Giants.

    @Playoffs – you owe me $20 – Easy money


  28. Pattonbb

    Easiest out on the team right now is Tabata. Alvarez at least hit the ball hard at times. Tabata isn’t even even making hard hit outs or hitting hard fouls.

  29. @Roberto

    Put it on my tab :)

    Love a W!!!

  30. Wish all our games were on Sunday. Still, many positives about this team right now. Pitching has been excellent and they found ways to score today. Offense has to get better and McKenry is playing well. Nice W. Lots of room for optimism. Pedro even made contact today.

  31. Nice win for the Buccos today…pitching continues to be very impressive and a couple of guys seem to be coming around. Looking forward to seeing the team in person the next three nights out here in the desert!

  32. JRay! Hope you see three wins … or even two out of three. I agree, with today’s win there is room NOW for a little optimism. It’s awful early: Let’s Go, Bucs!

  33. Oh, and I’m real happy to see that we FINALLY executed the squeeze play!

  34. When does Alvarez hit the ball hard? Remember, batting practice doesn’t count…
