Pirates Morning Report

FINAL SCORE: PIRATES 3 PADRES 7

WHY THE PIRATES LOST: BAD PITCHING THROUGHOUT THE GAME WAS THE MAIN REASON THE PIRATES LOST. ZACH THOMPSON,EVEN THOUGH HE GAVE UP ONLY THREE HITS, STILL SURRENDERED FOUR RUNS IN FOUR AND A THIRD INNINGS. RELIEVERS FLETCHER, HEMBREE AND SAM (I DON’T KNOW WHAT THE HELL I’M DOING) HOWARD, EACH GAVE UP A RUN, IN AN INNING OR LESS OF WORK. THE PIRATES COULD ONLY MUSTER THREE RUNS ON TEN HITS AND TWO WALKS. NEEDLESS TO SAY THEY WERE NOT VERY CLUTCH.

KEY PLAY OF THE GAME: THE KE’BRYAN HAYES HOT SHOT UP THE MIDDLE THAT BOUNCED OFF YU DARVISH SO HARD THAT MANNY MACHADO WAS ABLE TO THROW HAYES OUT AT FIRST BASE. EVEN THOUGH THE PIRATES DID SCORE THEIR THIRD RUN IN THAT INNING TO MAKE THE SCORE FOUR TO THREE, THIS PREVENTED THE PIRATES FROM POSSIBLY HAVING A BIG INNING.

NEXT GAME: TONIGHT PADRES IN PITTSBURGH. THE PIRATES ARE ON A FOUR GAME SKID WHICH I AM SURE IS MAKING MANAGEMENT HAPPY RIGHT NOW. THEY ARE HEADING IN THE DIRECTION THEY WANT.
