Pirates Morning Report

FINAL SCORE: PIRATES 1 DODGERS 11

WHY THE PIRATES LOST: THE DODGERS WERE DETERMINED NOT TO LOSE 2 IN A ROW TO THE LOWLY PIRATES. THEY HIT AND FIELDED THEIR WAY TO AN EASY WIN. THE PIRATES COULD ONLY GET 4 HITS AND WERE NEVER REALLY IN THE GAME. IT WAS A DEFINITE HO HUMMER.

KEY MOMENT OF THE GAME: NOT KNOWING THAT THIS WAS GOING TO BE SUCH A BLOW OUT, THE FIRST INNING SUMMED UP WHAT WAS ABOUT TO COME. THE DODGERS SCORED 2 RUNS IN THE TOP OF THE 1ST WITH THE HELP OF 2 SUN CAMOUFLAGED FLY BALLS THAT BEN GAMEL COULD NOT CORRAL. IN THE BOTTOM OF THE 1ST THE PIRATES HAD 2ND AND 3RD WITH NO ONE OUT, WHEN HAYES HIT A MEDIUM FLY TO MOOKY BETTS AND FOR WHATEVER REASON THE PIRATES DECIDED TO TEST MOOKY’S ARM AND HE EASILY GUNNED DOWN BEN GAMEL AT THE PLATE. ESSENTIALLY THE GAME WAS OVER, EVEN THOUGH THE PIRATES DID NOT KNOW IT AT THE TIME.

NEXT GAME: TODAY, DODGERS AT PITTSBURGH. THIS IS A SURPRISING RUBBER MATCH. LET’S HOPE THAT THE PIRATES AT LEAST TRY AND WIN THIS GAME AND NOT START COLE (WHY IS HE ON THE TEAM LET ALONE STARTING) TUCKER. IT WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA TO GIVE THE TURTLE A REST. MAYBE THE PIRATES DID HAVE SOMETHING LEADING HIM OFF. AT LEAST YOU CAN NOT START THE GAME BY HITTING INTO A DOUBLE PLAY. HE IS PROBABLY EXHAUSTED FROM HAVING TO RUN ON THE PITCH ABOUT THREE TIMES ON A 3-2 COUNT WITH 2 OUT. TOMORROW WILL BE THE PIRATES 30TH GAME. I WILL TAKE A LOOK AT HOW THEY HAVE DONE THE FIRST 30 GAMES.
