not much of a debut by archer. why the hell does he walk the lead off every inning? well besides the double and homer leadoffs? :evil: comfy lead faded away

That was an underwhelming performance overall. Maybe he was nervous pitching in front of the home crowd? Maybe he just didn't have his best stuff, but Archer's lucky he didn't get knocked out in the first three innings tonight.

I did like Archer's compete effort, and the dude does have good stuff. Frankly, the umpire screwed him to lead off the 5th inning -- I still don't know why in 2018 we can't have an automated strike zone and end all this subjective shifting strike zone crap. Frankly, Jordy Mercer screwed him by letting a double play ball go under his glove. Frankly, Marte let him down by losing the ball in the lights or whatever, and, frankly, good old Skip Hurdle surprised me with the quick hook -- less than 100 pitches and in the 5th inning -- skip has given longer leashes to lesser pitchers in the past to get them their 5 innings.

Skip didn't get tonight's script -- people came to see Archer get his first win and Skip decided to treat this like the Roulette Game. Now it's a battle of the bullpens. Maybe the new reliever will steal the show? After all, NH made these trades to suck yinz back to the ball park and Hurdle needs to understand that takes precedence over winning a ball game in early August.

Too bad Frazier can’t field for shit.

He’d be an everyday player if he could.

Wasn’t pretty but it’s a win!

So...from now until September 3, with the exception of a two-game set against Minnesota, the Pirates will be playing teams they are competing against for a playoff spot.

We will know by the end of the month if September baseball in Pittsburgh is worth watching.

Starting to worry that the pitching is reverting to form.

No runs scored yet but Nova is struggling to locate.

As did Archer yesterday and Kingham on Wednesday.

Addendum to earlier post.

Dickerson has been activated, but is not starting.

Nova looks sharper this inning so far with the first batter.

Maybe Diaz’ ridiculous gear was blinding him.

Of course Kolten Wong follows with a double...although Polanco nearly got him at second (like he nearly got Carpenter in the first inning).

Hell of a defensive play by the Bucs to gun a runner at the plate again!

Nova at 81 pitches and it's 4-1.

Hurdle will make him suck this up.

Cervelli flashing some leather in his first ever start at first base.

Sorry...in two years. He has played it before.

The Pirates have not retired the side in order since the 3rd inning Tuesday night.

That’s now 24 innings and counting.

Hurdle looks to be conceding this game to preserve the bullpen.

Hopefully this is Ivan Nova's last season as a Pirate.
