Gopher Balls!

Has anyone noticed the Pirates relief corps along with Zach Duke have been surrendering the long ball lately?   Tonight’s matchup and the Pirates take on Duke’s trouble with the long ball is here. 

Duke.  Six homeruns in his last 14 innings pitched.

Evan Meek.  Gave up a key homer last night after not being scored upon in eleven innings.

John Grabow.  He was rolling along before that 0-2 pitch….when he gave up a three run shot to Iannetta on Saturday.

Jesse Chavez.  Gave up a two run walkoff to Helton on Saturday.  He has been scored on in two of  his last two appearances.  (3.1IP, four runs, two homeruns)
