First off, Happy 4th of July everyone. It is great to be living in a country such as the USA.
The Bucs won a wierd game last night, 7-4 over Florida. Couple of rain delays in the ballgame. Here is the recap. Here is the box score.
Charlie Morton picks up his first win as a Pirate with a nice performance. Struck out four in a good outing. It was interesting after a 45 minute rain delay he came back into action when normally a team would go to the pen for relief. He did a nice job of getting outs and not getting into too much trouble.
The pitching staff as a whole held the Marlins 1-4 hitters to go a combined 0-14 last night while their sixth hitter, Dan Uggla went 0-4 with three strikeouts.
Not too much brewin today. Zach Duke will pitch for the Bucs at 6:10 against the Marlins. He has probably been the best the Pirates have had all season so hopefully he can get the Pirates another win in Florida.
Speaking of, why the hell are they playing at 6:10? It's the fourth of July. The game should be at 1:10. No questions. A lot of games are at 4:00, which is even better than a night game. Come on.
Be safe everyone.
