Pirates Take Series from Rockies Behind Bucs Not Named McCutchen


The Pittsburgh Pirates put up nine runs and Neil Walker and Andrew McCutchen had little to do with it offensively.  Although not a cool site to see Walker and McCutchen lose their 17 and eight game hitting streaks, but a Bucco win with great offensive contributions from other names in the lineup is a great sign.

Garrett Jones had three hits, including one of the Bucs four home runs.  Pedro Alvarez hit bomb number nineteen.

God, life is good for Bucco fans as the Bucs clubbed the Colorado Rockies 9-6.

James McDonald pitched poorly through five innings, but had more bombs from Rod Barajas and Casey McGehee.  The Rockies got bombs from Dexter Fowler and Carlos Gonzalez.

Andrew Brown was called up from AAA and hit cleanup as he collected three hits for the Rox.  Brown tied the game at six before the Lumber Company took charge.

GFJ started the fifth inning with a single off reliever Matt Reynolds.  McGehee followed with his eighth bomb of the season.  Barajas crushed a homer an out later.

Hanranator got his 26th save in 29 chances.

JMac got his tenth win of the season while giving up six runs on nine hits, while walking four and punching out two.  He threw 108 pitches over his five innings.
