Pirates Morning Report

FINAL SCORE: PIRATES 2 BREWERS 3

WHY THE PIRATES LOST: THE BATS HAD ANOTHER QUIET DAY AS THE PIRATES COULD ONLY COLLECT SIX HITS AND ONLY ONE OF THEM WAS AN EXTRA BASE HIT. THE BREWERS DID NOT WALK A BATTER. STRATTON FAILED TO HOLD THE LEAD IN THE NINTH BUT THE WINNING HIT BY MCCUTCHEN COULD HAVE BEEN CAUGHT. QUINTANA HAD ANOTHER SOLID START STRIKING OUT NINE WITH NO WALKS AND GIVING UP ONLY ONE RUN IN FIVE INNINGS.

THE KEY PLAY: THE MCCUTCHEN HIT TO GIVE THE BREWERS THE LEAD WITH WITH ONE OUT IN THE NINTH. THE PIRATES WENT QUIETLY IN THE BOTTOM OF THE NINTH

NEXT GAME: TONIGHT PADRES IN PITTSBURGH. INDEED IT LOOKS LIKE THE BREWERS HAVE THE PIRATES NUMBER THIS YEAR. THEY DID BOUNCE BACK FROM THE FIRST SWEEP IN MILWAUKEE. WE WILL SEE WHAT THEY CAN DO AGAINST THE PADRES. IT IS TIME TO MAKE BEDNAR THE CLOSER. STRATTON IS JUST TOO INCONSISTENT.
