"You watch this game, Lanny, and you just wonder, where's it all been?" - Bob Walk
Walk doesn't usually have a clue.
With that comment though, he was right on.
We've been as critical as anyone about the Pirate offense.
We didn't have many hits at www.firejeffmanto.com today.
We have no problem giving the Pirates credit. In fact we don't even have to write it.
Check the books to see how good it was:
13 Runs on 18 hits
Chris Duffy 3-for-4, raised his avg to .240 and stole a base for the first time since April
Freddy Sanchez 3-for-6 with 3 RBI
Jason Bay 2-for-4 with 2 RBI
Ryan Doumit 2-for-5
Ronny Paulino 2-for-4 with 2 RBI
Jack Wilson 3-for-3 with 2 runs scored
They did all that without hitting a homerun.
Walk sums it up in the ninth.
"One of those games where everything the Pirates did turned out great."
Too Bad it doesn't mean anything tomorrow.
