    Because nothing can ever be easy for the Pirates their 81st victory of the season last week was followed by four consecutive losses and tonight they matched up against Yu Darvish and the Rangers in Texas. After six scoreless innings the Pirates scraped together a run off Darvish–with midseason pickup Marlon Byrd doubling and scoring–and…

    Here’s a blast from the past: Felix Pie, the former top Cubs prospect turned 28-year-old journeyman, has been called up from Triple-A by the Pirates and is batting leadoff tonight.

    Jul 31, 2013, 8:51 PM EDT

    Giancarlo Stanton

    The Marlins made it clear to everyone that they weren’t interested in trading their star right fielder, but according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Reviews’s Rob Biertempfel, the Pirates made an offer for Giancarlo Stanton that “caught the attention of the Marlins’ front office” before being rebuffed. With either Gerrit Cole or Jameson Taillon to headline a…

  5. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Jul 24, 2013, 7:07 AM EDT

    Cleveland Indians v Seattle Mariners

    Mariners 4, Indians 3: The M’s just keep on winning. That’s eight in a row, with this one ending interestingly. The Indians had runners on the corners with no one out in the ninth. Then Drew Stubbs got caught in a rundown he probably shouldn’t have gotten caught in between third and home, ending the…

  6. Jeff Locke not starting Sunday due to back tightness, will not pitch in All-Star Game

    Jul 13, 2013, 5:40 PM EDT

    Jeff Locke

    Pirates left-hander Jeff Locke felt some back tightness following his most recent start on Monday, so Michael Sanserino of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that he will not start tomorrow against the Mets and will also skip Tuesday’s All-Star Game. Gerrit Cole will start in Locke’s place tomorrow. The good news is that the back issue…

Athletics 1, Cubs 0: Offense-lovers need not apply. Dan Straily allowed only one hit in seven shutout innings. Travis Wood had six shutout innings of his…

    Wandy Rodriguez

    On the disabled list with an elbow injury, Wandy Rodriguez got a platelet-rich plasma injection and will need at least three more weeks of rest and rehab, the Pirates announced.

  9. Wandy Rodriguez shut down due to lingering tightness in forearm

    Jun 29, 2013, 5:02 PM EDT

    Wandy Rodriguez

    Winners of seven straight, the Pirates currently have the best record in the majors at 49-30. But not everything is going their way.

  10. James McDonald had a setback, will see Dr. James Andrews

    Jun 25, 2013, 4:40 PM EDT

    James McDonald

    It was looking more and more like the Pirates would shift James McDonald from the rotation to the bullpen once he returned from the disabled list, but now it might be a moot point. McDonald continues to experience shoulder soreness and Michael Sanserino of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette reports that the right-hander will be examined…

    Gerrit Cole is 3-0 with a 3.44 ERA through three career starts, walking just one batter in 18 innings while throwing 101 miles per hour and defeating Zack Greinke, Tim Lincecum, and Jered Weaver.

    San Francisco Giants v Pittsburgh Pirates

    Gerrit Cole is 3-0 with a 3.44 ERA through his first three career starts, walking a grand total of one batter in 18.1 innings at age 22, and the names the former No. 1 overall pick has beaten makes it even more impressive. In his MLB debut Cole defeated former Cy Young winner Tim Lincecum.…

  13. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Jun 17, 2013, 6:49 AM EDT

    Anna Scorecard

    Athletics 10, Mariners 2: This game was a Father’s Day treat for me. Why? Because I used it to teach my daughter how to keep score. I printed out scoresheets. I did a little sketch on the top of hers to illustrate the numbers which correspond with each defensive position. I paused the TV after…
