Both Pearce and Bowker were hosed by the ump. There should have been runners on 1st and 2nd for Tabata with 0 outs.

Didn't Bowker go down swinging?

The Pearce call was bad, although IIRC he only had a ball or two, so you can't see he should have been on base. Surprised Hurdle didn't argue that one for team moral purposes. It worked in the Cubs series.

Doesn't really matter if he did or did not. I'm pretty sure a couple of the previously called strikes weren't in the strike zone.

Perhaps it is time that they started using modern technology to determine balls and strikes. Then there would be no need for the biased fat guy behind the catcher!

The Pirates have been getting pretty victimized lately. Some of these pitches aren't even close.

Losing sucks. Especially these types of losses.

Still, for whatever reason, I'm going to look on the 'bright side':

At the Pens game when I looked up at the scoreboard I saw it was 4-0 Rockies in the 2nd. By the time I looked up again it read 6-5 F.

So the fact that the Bucs fought back from (ANOTHER) early deficit is a good thing. The fact they got and blew the lead is obviously not.

This team is primarily young, though, so I'm not going to skewer them just yet. Plus, the Rockies are a fine club. I'll be more worried if and when the Bucs lose like this to the Stros.

I think these 'comebacks' and 'tough losses' bode well for the future. It builds character... or something.

It's only 2011 and the team is still .500. Not time to panic.
