Game 45: Pirates 5 Marlins 1

Honestly, it feels like someone just flipped a light switch on Federal Street after the Twins series. Last Wednesday, the Pirates were a bland, under-achieving, boring baseball team that couldn’t find a way to win a game against the Twins at home. They’ve made a full turn of the rotation since then, going 5-0 and out-scoring the Mets and Marlins 30-7. This game turned in the...

Five in a row

This game/series can be summed up pretty simply: the Marlins are bad, and the Pirates are no longer bad. I suppose it’s tough to tell whether or not this is more about the Pirates playing well or their opponents playing very poorly, but in the end it doesn’t matter – all wins count the same and the Bucs have five of them in a row. After falling into an early hole in the standings...

Pirates run win streak to 5, top Marlins 5-1

PITTSBURGH (AP) Jeff Locke worked into the sixth inning in his first win in more than a month, and the Pittsburgh Pirates dropped the reeling Miami Marlins 5-1 on Tuesday night. Locke (3-2) struck out six and walked four in 5 2/3 shutout innings for his first victory this season against a team other than last-place Milwaukee. Neil Walker hit a two-run homer in Pittsburgh's fifth...

Jeff Locke takes the mound as Pirates look to win consecutive series for first time in 2015

I’m running late on this post tonight, so I’ll keep it short: the Marlins are a mess right now. The Pirates are playing their best baseball of 2015. The Pirates haven’t won two series in a row yet this year, and so I think that tonight is the night for that to change. Don’t leave it for Gerrit Cole tomorrow: do it tonight. Jose Urena starts for the Marlins. His big league...

Jeff Locke, whatever

Jeff Locke’s last start was really bad, and then somehow the Pirates gave the game a worse ending. I want to tell you that he’s pitching for his job, but he’s probably not because with Charlie Morton in Vance Worley’s spot, there’s not really anyone to take his job from him. The Pirates have lost five of their last six games. This is very hard to get excited for. Josh Harrison...

Jeff Locke tries to get the Pirates a split with the Cubs

It’s only been two games, but I’ve been quite impressed with the 2015 version of Jeff Locke. I don’t like to jump to too many conclusions based on just a couple of games, but Locke’s control looks vastly improved this year and his ground balls are way up. Obviously Locke’s control has varied pretty widely from start-to-start over his career, but I feel like we’ve seen...
