Pirates Morning Report:

FINAL SCORE: PIRATES 4 ST. LOUIS 18

WHY THE PIRATES LOST: SOMEBODY TOLD BRYCE WILSON THAT HE WOULD ONLY BE PITCHING BATTING PRACTICE TO THE CARDINALS TODAY AND HE BELIEVED THEM. THE GAME STARTED AT 11:30, WAY TO EARLY FOR THE PIRATES. EVEN THOUGH NOTHING MAKES A DIFFERENCE IN A GAME LIKE THIS, THE PIRATES CONTINUE TO PUT OUT THESE STRANGE LINE UPS. ANOTHER INFIELDER IN RIGHT FIELD AND HE COULD NOT THROW A RUNNER OUT AT THE PLATE FROM 170 FEET. KE’BRYAN HAYES MADE ANOTHER ERROR TODAY. I DON’T THINK ARENADO WILL HAVE TO BE WORRIED ABOUT HAYES STOPPING HIS GOLD GLOVE STREAK THIS YEAR, OR IN THE NEAR FUTURE. FINALLY, THE PIRATES SENT A REQUEST TO THE LEAGUE OFFICE, THAT FROM NOW ON THEIR OPPONENTS HAVE TO HAVE A POSITION PLAYER PITCH AT LEAST ONE INNING, IN EVERY GAME. THAT IS THE ONLY WAY THE PIRATES HAVE A CHANCE AT SCORING RUNS.

KEY MOMENT OF THE GAME: WHEN BRYCE WILSON THROUGH A PITCH.

NEXT GAME: TONIGHT, ROCKIES IN PITTSBURGH. THE PIRATES ARE 9-13 AT HOME AND THE ROCKIES ARE 5-10 ON THE ROAD. EXPECT SOME GREAT BASEBALL. I HEAR THAT SHELTON IS THINKING OF STARTING REYNOLDS, GAMEL, AND SUWINSKI IN THE INFIELD. HE IS PUTTING HAYES, CASTRO, AND CHAVIS, IN LEFT, CENTER, AND RIGHT. WHY NOT? I AM SURE THE PIRATE ANNOUNCERS WILL BE ABLE TO JUSTIFY THOSE MOVES.
