Stop the Press- Bucs Win!

It wasn't that long ago that the Pirates couldn't beat the Brewers. Now they have won 3 of the last 4 against them. Last night the offense looked good. Every time the Brewers got a run the Bucs responded. Andy LaRoche, Garrett Jones and Ronny Cedeno all went yard and Pittsburgh pounded out 16 hits on their way to a rare win, 9-5. Kevin Hart got his first win as a Pirate and for once the bullpen didn't blow up. Its only one game but the losing gets to you. Last night was the first game I watched the whole way through in quite some time. Maybe its because there was nothing else I wanted to do or maybe I was hoping to see a bench clearing brawl. There is still time for the brawl. These two teams do not like each other and with the Brewers playoff chances slipping away, anything can (and hopefully will) happen. It just makes boring August baseball that much better to watch. Go Bucs!
