Pirates fans, we thought you might need something to cheer you up today….
After that loss in New York last night, we had to dig up some good mojo for you. Here is what we were able to find. Pirates relievers have allowed five earned runs in the last 19 innings pitched. We will exclude talking about the recent performance of Zach Duke and Paul Maholm.
Chris Resop has struck out 21 batters in 16.1 innings of work.
Chris LeRoux has pitched two scoreless innings since being picked off the waiver wire.
Andrew McCutchen has driven in six runs in the past four games.
Charlie Morton spoke with Rocco in a recent interview
. I found it very interesting. Can Morton be more detailed and honest? Go listen to it. It’s about 17 minutes long and has detailed answers from Morton throughout.
“At AAA….I got hit, I gave up homeruns, doubles, triples…guys running around the bases… A lot of it had to do with mentally trusting my abilities.” —-Charlie Morton
“If I’m so good why am I getting hit so hard?”—-Charlie Morton
