Nice way to start the 2nd half. Nice HR, Josh! 5-2 Buccos!

We had 'em all the way!

It has been a long time since the Pirates system groomed a power hitter like Josh Bell. Pedro could hit the long ball but had Swiss cheese in his swing. Bell is going to be really really good.

Yup -- great way to start off the 2nd half -- woohoo!

Entertaining Friday evening game, always nice to take one against the Cards. Cole with a crappy start but settling down then bullpen lights out. Ring the Bell! Beat 'em Bucs!!

Agreed. That looked like a glancing blow/foul or pop-fly at first, but man, power is good!

And by the way, huge props to Frazier stretching that leadoff hit into a double. Gutsy decision to take the extra base.

Plus the hit itself. Seemed to me that Frazier was looking for something to poke down the left field line, and he got it.

Polanco is a moron, but at least he got the run back. Cole didn't run to 1st either, lazy fucker.

ya..can u believe that dumbass..get ur head in game fool..picked of 3rd is unexcusable.


Another problem I had with it is where the hell is the 3rd base coach?

Polanco should know better but a coach should be there keeping an eye on the ball as well.

Three hits tonight.

So glad Hurdle had him bunting earlier in the game.

Try and enjoy the victory, Jeemie. I have no use for bunting either except maybe in a squeeze play.

I totally enjoyed the win.

I just didn't enjoy Hurdle being Hurdle.
