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 will give warms feelings after the 10+ game losing streak on the other end of the 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...

Into third place and depending if the A’s can win will pass the Giants as well.

Bob Nutting was spotted earlier today:

The beat goes on...5-0 Buccos in the 4th against Kluber.

Make that 7-0.

Buccos apparently been eating their Wheaties. 9-2 over the Indians through 5, with Marte, Polonco and Bell gone yard. Pirates have hit 22 HR during this streak so far. :shock: Dickerson leading off seems to have helped turn on the offensive switch.

Save some for those bastards from Chicago, boys :lol:

Corey Dickerson is making Pirates’ fans say “Andrew Who?”

I was at the game Monday night. Left after the 2nd rain delay but the damage had been done!! Lots of Buccos fans in attendance.

These guys are having fun right now. Out there doing the rain dance Monday. It's great to see. I don't see them making any real noise this year but who knows?? Just win, baby :twisted:

The one thing we have to remember is how deep a hole they dug themselves in May-June.

That was brought home to me by thinking about this.

We’ve won 11 straight...and we have gained only three games on the division and only two games on a wild-card spot.

I’m loving this...don’t get me wrong...what the team, especially the offense, is doing is unreal.

But there’s a long way to go to make me believe the team can fight for a playoff spot.

Lots of games upcoming against the Cubs, Brewers and Cards, so the Pirates will have plenty of opportunities to answer all their 2018 questions ...

Yesterday Corey had to leave with a hamstring issue and isn’t playing today.

Just now Marte got plunked on the hand with a pitch. Looked painful...at least he’s still in there.

Gotta keep these guys away from injury!

Uh oh...Bad Buccos showing up ealy in this game.

Starling Marte out by a mile on a steal attempt.

Polanco just misplayed a single into a double.

No damage yet- but Bucs don’t looked focused early on.

And then Mercer makes a gem of a play and there’s no damage!

Trailing for the first time since the Sunday Brewers game.

And Adam Frazier replaced Marte after Marte got bonked on the hand...hmm...

I didn't know this on the slugging Corey. I saw the box score today at work and ranted on hurdle for sitting the hottest fucker in mlb for the day. who's replacement goes 0-4... naturally.
I can set aside my hurdle anger awhile. :lol:
man this teams been looking like the 27 yanks producing runs. amazing. I'm back sipping the Kool aid a tad.
the trade deadline should be interesting!
