Pirates squander Williams' steady start

Thu, 27 Jul 2017 00:05:46 EDT

Even after scrapping their way back to .500 and into the National League Central race, the Pirates are on the outside looking in. Every self-inflicted wound and missed opportunity is a setback, another degree of difficulty added to their path back to the postseason.



Bucs come up short, drop finale to Giants

Wed, 26 Jul 2017 20:45:40 EDT

A day after the Giants altered the top of their lineup by trading Eduardo Nunez, they had another productive day in a series-clinching 2-1 win over the Pirates. No. 3 hitter Brandon Belt delivered the go-ahead RBI and Joe Panik -- batting second in place of Nunez -- scored another run on a Brandon Crawford groundout to help San Francisco break even at .500 on its lengthy 10-game homestand.



Polanco adjusting to second DL stint

Wed, 26 Jul 2017 15:43:33 EDT

The Pirates are searching for silver linings following Gregory Polanco's second trip to the disabled list this season. The bright side? The long-limbed 25-year-old is becoming more aware of his physical limits, head athletic trainer Todd Tomczyk said, and he's learning how to handle life on the DL.

Bumgarner (1-4) spun five innings of one-run ball in his third start since returning from the disabled list after the All-Star break.

Taillon has career-worst night vs. Giants

Wed, 26 Jul 2017 03:35:19 EDT

Jameson Taillon called his start Tuesday night a "merry-go-round" for the Giants. Manager Clint Hurdle described it as a learning experience, typical for a second-year player in the Major Leagues. From any perspective, it was a forgettable night for Taillon and the Pirates as they lost, 11-3, at AT&T Park.



Meadows remains atop Bucs' Top 30 Prospects

Tue, 25 Jul 2017 22:46:43 EDT

Pirates' surge backs Cole's solid start

Tue, 25 Jul 2017 03:29:09 EDT

Cutch is Bucs' shining star once again

Mon, 24 Jul 2017 15:15:00 EDT

As the face of the Pirates' franchise, the past nine months have seen Andrew McCutchen faced with media speculation about him being traded, an initial decision that he moved from center field to right field and a season-opening two months that produced very un-McCutchen results. Not once, however, did he give in to the temptations of self-pity.

Sun, 23 Jul 2017 01:42:30 EDT

Starling Marte dribbled a ninth-inning fastball from Greg Holland just past the pitcher's mound. Using his signature speed, he sprinted down the line, earning the infield hit without a throw. With the bases loaded, Marte had himself his third hit of the night, driving in the Pirates' final run in a 7-3 loss.

Sun, 23 Jul 2017 02:06:38 EDT

Freese honing swing, but eye hasn't faltered

Thu, 20 Jul 2017 15:09:05 EDT

David Freese is still working on his swing, so he was encouraged by the two singles he swatted to right field during Wednesday's 3-2 win. But his eye and approach have not faltered all season. That much is evident in his .376 on-base percentage, which would be the highest mark of his career.



Bradenton's Keller forced out after six strong

Fri, 21 Jul 2017 03:40:59 EDT
