Pirates Week in Review: August 29-September 4

This is going to be a weekly post that I thought would be a nice addition to the site. This is going to be a Pirates weekly review where I go over the results for the past seven days and link up the box scores and the recap for each of the games. I also use the lovely FanGraphs and Baseball Reference to give you the box scores and the weekly stats for the team. I will try to have this up either late Sunday night or early Monday mornings, but you know how these things go.

Here is the Bucs weekly recap for this past week:

The Bucs had another bad week which was salvaged by winning a series against the Cubs in Chicago. The worst team in baseball, the Houston Astros, took a three game from the Pirates and then they went back to Pittsburgh and dropped a lone game to the Dodgers before taking two of three games from the Cubs. Before the week started there was a small glimmer of hope they could run off some big wins but that was shot down after dropping three straight to Houston.

Onto the games of last week:

Monday, August 29 - Houston 7, Pittsburgh 4
