Pirates Morning Report:

FINAL SCORE: PIRATES 3 PADRES 4

WHY THE PIRATES LOST: THE BATS WENT BACK TO NORMAL GETTING ONLY 1 LITTLE DRIBBLER OF A HIT AND A WALK IN THE LAST 5 INNINGS. QUINTANA PITCHED A GOOD GAME BUT WAS NOT EFFICIENT AND WAS REMOVED IN THE 6TH. JOSH VAN METER WAS FORCED TO PLAY 1ST BASE WHEN CHAVIS GOT HURT, WHICH PROVED TO BE COSTLY, AS THE PIRATES COULD NOT HOLD ON TO A 3 RUN LEAD. FOR THE PIRATE MANAGEMENT TEAM, WHEN YOU PUT YOUR FIRST BASEMAN ON THE IL, AND YOU HAVE ONLY ONE OTHER PLAYER TO PLAY THE POSITION, THEN YOU BRING UP A FIRST BASEMAN FROM THE MINOR LEAGUES. THIS LOST IS AGAIN ON MANAGEMENT. THEY HAVE DIRECTLY LOST ABOUT 1/4 OF ALL THE PIRATE GAMES THIS YEAR, GOOD JOB, LAST PLACE IS NOT FAR AWAY.

KEY MOMENT OF THE GAME: THE JOSH (YOU MEAN I HAVE TO HAVE MY FOOT ON THE BAG) VAN METER DEBACLE AT FIRST BASE. THIS WAS FOLLOWED UP BY THE 3 RUN HOMER BY LUKE VOIT. AFTER THE PADRES TOOK THE LEAD IN THE 8TH, THEY STILL HAD RUNNERS ON 1ST AND 2ND, WITH NOBODY OUT. AFTER THAT, I BELIEVE THEY JUST MADE OUTS ON PURPOSE, KNOWING THE PIRATES HAD NO CHANCE OF SCORING IN THE TOP OF THE NINTH. AFTER ALL, THERE IS LOTS TO DO IN SAN DIEGO ON A FRIDAY NIGHT.

NEXT GAME: TONIGHT, PADRES IN SAN DIEGO. AFTER THE GAME SHELTON SAID THAT CHAVIS IS DAY TO DAY. HE WAS SALIVATING HEAVILY WHEN HE SAID IT, JUST THINKING ABOUT ALL THE BIZARRE PLAYERS HE COULD PUT AT FIRST BASE NOW. I HEARD THAT EVEN IF THEY PUT CHAVIS ON THE IL, THE PIRATES ARE GOING TO BRING UP A CATCHER.
