Back Over the .500 Hump -- Bucs Win

Beggars can't be choosers.

Pirates fans can want it all, but they can't have it all.

We as Pirate fans can be begging for offense, but we can't be choose to not accept these games. It may not be pretty, but the Bucs are winning.

The Pirates rode another ridiculous starting pitching effort from Ian Snell en route to a 3-1 victory over the Reds tonight, pushing their record to 11-10. It was the Bucs fifth win in a row.

The bullpen, Marte and Torres, closed it down, but not without a scare again. Torres was hit hard, allowed a run, but most importantly shut the door.

It seems as though Matt Capps has become a contestant in the 'Waiting Game', now on DVD.

That Cover art is sick.

The offense was dreadful again. If you watched the first inning, left the house to get a steak and egg Primanti's and some Dave and Andy's ice cream and then didn't come back until the ninth, you would realize you didn't miss anything between innings Two and Eight.

Heart-attack on bread...

To me, the most important thing about this series is that the Bucs must win a Snell-Milton and Gorz-Belisle matchup, and they took the first step tonight.

3 Stars

1. Jack Wilson - Energizer Bunny so far
2. Jason Bay - Two more RIBS
3. Ian Snell - On fire...
