1. Jim Tracy looks as though he is going to lose it when it comes to this bullpen. And I mean, lose it.
2. Great punch from the middle of the lineup today. LaRoche, Bay and Sanchez go 6-for-12, 3 runs, 3 RBI, 2HR.
3. Another great start from Tommy G. 6.2, 7 hits, 3 earned. He tired a little, but he game them a chance to win.
4. The Dodgers bullpen pitched three shutout innings and allowed just one hit. King Salomon allowed four hits in one-third of an inning.
5. Heres Ryan Doumit since May 19th.
4-for-32, 2 runs, 1 RBI, 0 doubles, 0 homeruns.
Avg dropped from .375 to .310
6. The Pirates have a dismal nine pinch-hits this season in 72 at-bats, which calculates to a concerning .125 average for anyone who really wants to know.
