It has been a forgettable weekend for the Pirates.

They lost to the Cardinals by a score of 12-8 on Friday night, 5-0 on Saturday night and are trailing again in Sunday’s series finale at Busch Stadium in downtown St. Louis. Charlie Morton made the start Sunday but left with two outs in the second inning due to what is being termed as left foot discomfort.

Morton allowed five earned runs on six hits and two walks before exiting. He had a 1.74 ERA over his last six starts entering the crucial outing against the first-place Cards but looked completely overmatched.

The Pirates haven’t won a game since securing their first .500 season since 1992.

    Today is the Pirates’ fourth attempt to put 2013 in the books as a winning season, and it isn’t going very well. At least they will have 20 more chances–they can’t lose them all, right?

    C’mon Bucs get it done. The season is 162 games long. Watch out for the Reds, although my $ is still on the Pirate pitchers, who just need some run support.
