Swinging. Looking. Swinging.

The Pittsburgh Pirates pitching staff played in a can’t win game yesterday.  Clint Hurdle said after that game, ‘that’s a tough game to play.’  It might get tougher today in Port Charlotte against the Tampa Bay Rays. 

But all in all yesterday, it’s hard to imagine anything going much better. Seven innings. Four hits allowed. Thirteen strikeouts.   If it wasn’t a damn exhibition we could be celebrating. 

Two hits. One run. One strikeout.

One hit. One strikeout.

KK and K

Wilson threw one inning with two strikeouts.

No hits. Two strikeouts. The defensive gem of the game after Atkins booted a ball to his right McPherson covered the bag for the second out.

Bring on Manny, Johnny and the boys.  

Charlie Morton will get the start against the Rays today and is scheduled to throw two innings.  Brad Lincoln will follow and is also planned for two.  The two fifth-starter hopefuls will be followed by Chris Resop, Dan Moskos, and Daniel McCutchen.  

We are leaving before we anticipate the Pirates lineup being announced.  Twitter will be the best way to check out the action.
