Pirates Swept

The Pirates lost their third consecutive game to the LA Dodgers in an early game today by the score of 3-1. Kevin Hart actually had a pretty good start for the Pirates (about time) but the Pirates could not muster up enough offense to bring home the win.

I guess it does not help when you only get one run (off a Jaramillo single) and then pretty much expect your starting pitching to throw a shut out every night. It is just not going to happen.

The Bucs only got six hits from their offense, Cutch has two of those to hopefully start to get him out of his funk. The Pirates currently do not have an everyday player with above a .300 average. Good lord this is getting bad. I really didn't think that they were going to get to 100 losses but it is getting pretty evident that they will hit the 100 loss mark.

The Pirates are 2-16 in their last 18 and it just looks bad. Right now they are five games back of the Nationals for the worst record in the league. The Pirates have 144 games in this season and with 18 games left there is no hope for a good finish.

Ride out the worst.

Go Bucs
