Recap: 100th Career Win for Lohse

Pirates Lose 7-4
WP: Kyle Lohse(12-8)
LP:Jeff Karstens(9-8)
S: Jason Motte(1)

The Pirates started off the game with a early run when Andrew McCutchen got a RBI single, scoring Jose Tabata. The Cardinals didn't care, responding with three runs making the score 3 to 1 after the first inning. In the second, the Pirates got 3 runs of their own off a RBI single by Ronny Cedeno, a wacky play made by the Cardinals on a Jeff Karstens ground out from second turns into a run for the Bucs, and a Jose Tabata RBI ground-out. The Cards inched back in the 3rd when Ryan Theriot hits in Lance Berkman, making the score tied at 4 after 3rd. The Cardinals toke the lead in the 4th when Allen Craig hit a sacrifice fly, scoring Kyle Lohse. After that the Bucs couldn't put it together, and the Cardinals ran away with it in the 7th, scorning two runs, and making the score 7 to 4 which it stood for the last 2 innings.

Three Stars:
3) Chris Leroux (2 IP, 2 SO)
2) Ryan Theriot (2 H, 2 RBI, 1 BB)
1) Michael McKenry (1 R, 1 H)
LVP: Jeff Karstens (3.2 IP, 9 H, 5 ER, 2 BB, 1 SO)

The Pirates look to get back on the winning train tomorrow against Houston.

  4. Dear Operation Shutdown Blog(a.k.a. legit the worst blog ever. EVER),
    You guys make me sick. Everytime I read anything you guys post, i truely want to die.
    And I don't mean like a heart attack kind of death, i mean like falling off a cliff, but surving the fall, and then have a pack of wild kangaroos smother my body for a consistent 3 hours. But still survive. And then go to the hospital and get MRSA from medical malpractice. And die from that. That is what your blog makes me feel like. I'm sorry to hurt your feelings, but its the truth. Just give up, PLEASE!

  5. can i like that comment too? i completely agree you guys suck
