Pirates Caffeine: Bryce Harper, Jason Jaramillo, Lambo, Curry Homer


"In that situation, we need a little more firm throw (from Walker), that was it, that was a very aggressive play, a very gutsy play, and Lyle was actually kind of feeling (Ford) might try it. If we had two firm throws on target, things might have been different.   Clint Hurdle on ROOT Sports last night."

Jason Jaramillo hit a grand slam as AAA Indy was victorious in come from behind fashion against Norfolk.  Justin Wilson had three hitless innings to start the game for the Indians.  But errors and a difficult next two innings put the Tribe behind.

Josh Harrison went 4-for-4 and Andrew Lambo went yard for his first home of the season.

Daniel Moskos closed out the game with two innings of one hit, scoreless relief for his first save.

And Harper didn’t disappoint…

The dramatic follows the phenom around like a shadow. Harper launched a towering two-out homer in the first inning, but West Virginia Power starter Tyler Waldron buckled down and the Power’s losing streak is over. There were just under 1,600 people at Appalachian Power Park last night. That number will grow for certain tonight, but it made me wonder just how many were at PNC Park last night too.

Matt Curry is still stuck in West Virginia destroying pitching.  Save Matt Curry!

Waldron went five innings, allowed six hits and two earned runs. He allowed three solo home runs. So why only two earned? Read the story….

The 17-3  St. Lucie Mets and their seven game winning streak was crushed by the Murderers, excuse me, Marauders.  The boys with the gold B put up a ten spot in the first inning to roll to victory.

Jarek Cunningham hit two home runs and drove in four runs to pace the Bradenton attack.
