Break up the Bucs! Another series win! Good offense. Great starting pitching. Monster shots from GJ and Pedro! It's getting fun to watch again. Let's beat the Tigers!

STARTER: JMac gets the Bucs first complete game of the year..giving up just one run on six hits. No doubt about this one. GREAT START.

WIN: Obviously, JMac gets the win to go to 6-3. ERA drops to 2.19. All star game??

STAR #3: GJones goes 2-4 with a HR, a run, and 3 RBI. His bat has really come alive of late. 8 HR and 25 RBI in just 150 at bats...not too shabby.

STAR #2: Despite 9 runs of offense, JMac played a huge role in this Bucco win and gets the second star.

STAR #1: Cutch!!!!! Cutch goes 3-4 with triple, double, 2 runs, 3 RBIs.

Honorable Mention: Presley gets 2 hits, steals a base and scores a run. Pedro goes 2-4, hitting a HR 465 feet! He scores 2 and drives in one. Barajas goes 1-3 with a 2 run HR, and makes a real nice play to throw Morneau out at third.

Bucfan admits that he is a pitching fan. McDonald deserves No. 1 star, since his effort forced Minnesota to bring in the "B" team when the Buccos had the lead.

The Pirates teed off on the "B" team of relievers. This something that good teams do.

And it was brought about by McDonald's excellent start.

JMac and Cutch should be flipped on this one. McDonald was filthy tonight. Anytime a pitcher can throw a complete game to save the bullpen and only give up one run...#1 star.

I was debating. JMac already picked up 4 points with "great start" and the win. Anybody else agree? JMac #1, Cutch #2??

Jmac #1 star. Not only for his performance but the timing of it. The rubber match for the series win and giving the bullpen another must needed rest....clutch pitching

This is a tough one. Want both of them to be #1. Cutch's double with the bases loaded made J Mac's night little easier, yet a complete game for us is huge. I say take the 1st and 2nd place points and give half to each.

I am going to leave it as is...let me explain why. First off, JMac was great....nine nearly perfect innings, which is difficult to do. I want to make sure he gets the credit he deserves. But Cutch had a couple of real clutch at bats. He got the ball rolling with his triple in the first...then came through with bases loaded, where so many players have failed this year. This broke the game open, which allowed Mac to relax.

So with the "great start", win, and #2 star, JMac got 6 points. As the #1 star, Cutch only got three points. I think it's fair.

Case closed! lol
