That’s right- leave Joe Musgrove in after he’d thrown 105 pitches on a 95 degree day.

#Hurdled.

Holy Shit!!!

But first, I was thinking the same thing, Jeems, watching on my phone/tv broadcast --- just turned on the game after church, expecting a letdown day/blowout loss after the previous run of wins, instead find things tied-up in the 8th . . . then the Brews load the bases after the walk . . . my daughter stares at me as I yell "go to the pen, you idiot!" . . . nope, Hurdle leaves Musgrove out there to twist in the heat, sure enough, bases-clearing 3-run hit . . . and as the first 2 Bucs go down meekly in the bottom of the 8th I switch off the game in disgust, another "Hurdled" loss (obviously Clint is far from their biggest problem this year, but still brings back bad memories of those past-season "it's only one game" losses here and there adding up to trapping us into wildcard losses) . . .

Now I just check the MLB Scoreboard and discover a Pirates 7 - 6, comeback win in the 10th to cap a 5-game sweep that knocks the Brewers out of first place . . .

Holy Shit!!!

A five game sweep of the Brewers is a damn good way to go into the all-star break.

It was (I was at the Friday night game...looked like it was the best attended game of the series to me- was loads of fun, even as I felt guilty giving Nutting my money).

However, the team is not fundamentally different from the team that went 9-19 right after it went 12-4 to open the season. Pitching is still a sore spot.

And even with the 6-game win streak...the Pirates are still 9 games out of first and 5.5 games out of a wild card spot.

Maybe the streak will prevent Nut from selling off...maybe not.

6-0 in the 2nd. Homers by Polanco, Dickerson (5th in 4 games), and Marte, plus an RBI single by Moroff.

The Pirates have smashed 26 home runs in July...most in the bigs.

But this streak has been fueled by some excellent pitching too.

Now Serpico has just gone yard.

Damn I hope there’s not a reversion to mean any time soon...
