I thought the ump was fine tonight. Burnett couldn't put his curveball where it needed to be so he couldn't put guys away like he normally could.

The Pirates hit a lot of balls hard but couldn't string the hits together.

This game was there for the taking but we just couldn't get it done.

There were worse missed opportunities than Alvarez (who went 2-4 w/ a HR) striking out against a tough closer ... like Marte being stranded after doubling to start the game, Barmes stranded at second with one out in the 5th, Alvarez stranded after hitting a single to lead off the seventh.

Tough loss given how the runs were given up, but not a game to really feel badly about either.


Pretty much.

Sure Pedro K'd, Cutch got screwed, etc., but the Bucs were blessed to have A.J. salvage that bases-loaded no-out inning.

It's nearly certain that any other current SP not named Wandy would have given up more than one run there.

Frustrating loss... but aren't they all?

Real bad loss tonight. Ace on the mound against someone who is making a spot start and couldn't get anyone out in Class AAA. Now we get to face Halladay and Lee. Great!


We beat Malholm and Hudson?
