Pirates look to go long vs. Bumgarner

Tue, 25 Jul 2017 12:18:20 EDT

Giants ace Madison Bumgarner will start the second game of a three-game series against the Pirates on Tuesday night, his third outing since rejoining San Francisco's rotation July 15. If he can keep the ball inside AT&T Park, he should be fine. But that's been an issue lately.

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.

Thu, 20 Jul 2017 19:21:19 EDT
