Robinson makes contact; run scores; bases loaded for GORZELANNY

Big, big things can happen... the Pirates up by one, and it is upto the pitcher to expand that lead...

SOMETHING RARE JUST HAPPENED

Want to know what happened?

Every fielder dreams of this...

Only some can do it...

GORZELANNY GROUNDS INTO A PLAY, NOT A DOUBLE, NOT A SINGLE, BUT A TRIPLE!

...

Gorzelanny is the worst hitter ever! He grounded into a triple play, ruining all chances of the Pirates having a rally! Boo! Curse him for grounding to the shortstop, who threw to home, and then to first, and then the first baseman threw to third, which caught Zimmerman in a run down! Curse him!

4 words: Go to your bullpen, or just put in a pinch hitter.

Also, look at the last word of my sig to give you my take on that.

Charlie Zink, Knuckler, comes in; gives up tying + go-ahead run, injured

...

THIS IS WHY THE RED SOCKS GOT RID OF YOU, ZINK! AS A PITCHER, YOU DO NOT BLOW LEADS - YOU PROTECT THEM! GET THAT THROUGH YOUR HEAD! AND, WHO THROWS A 59 MILE PER HOUR PITCH? OF COURSE THEY WILL DRILL IT DEEP TO CENTER, LEFT, OR RIGHT!

Fans at PNC Park were not pleased with Zink's performance after he gave up the go-ahead run to Lance Berkman, and the tying run to Brad Ausmus...


Looks like knuckleball pitchers aren't liked here, with the exception of Wakefield. He had a good first year for the Pirates.

Eric Gagne set to relieve injured Zink

Finally! Someone who knows how to pitch!

Pirates win in nine

A great, close game until the very end. It wasn't the kind of performance you would expect to see from Pittsburgh, though. Especially since it is probably the lowest score they've finished with all season. They came away with the victory though, 6-5. Pirates, dominant as ever.

Let's look at how the Pirates' did, pitching-wise:

Tom Gorzelanny only pitched six innings. However, he did better than his replacement, which is remarkable seeing as how he had a poor season last year. However, out of those six innings, he was able to keep the Astros at bay with three runs, two strikeouts, and six hits. One of the better performances for a starter on the Pirates this year, but not the best.

Charlie Zink. He's probably one of the most hated guys on this club right now. He blew a one-run lead! If this was bean town, I'm sure they'd be calling for his head much like they did Bill Buckner's like they did after the 1986 World Series! Though, of course, no actual curse is in place here... unless the Curse of the Kearns is true..! However, it isn't and Zink ended up onlu pitching for 1 and 2/3 of an inning, as he allowed four hits, struck out one batter, and allowed two runs. By far, he had the worst performance of the game.

Eric Gagne, a Human Growth Hormone taker. I think it is safe to call him Eric "Jab" Gagne. Jab comes as if one is jabbing a needle into their arm... assuming that's how one takes HGH. Anyway, out of respect for him, he did a great job. He held the Astros to one hit - which is the only noticable thing he did all game, besides walking away with the victory.

Player of the Game

Charlie Zink! Duh! He made it so Wright could hit a walk-off homerun!

This is dead to me. =( It got boring winning every game because the AI sucks. Maybe it was the trades. Idk.
