Correia!!!! Bucs Win 4-2

The Mad Max of the pitching staff does it again....

Road Warrior.

Correia went 7 and a 1/3, surrendering 4 Hits and 2 BBs with 2 Ks, picking up his 7th Win of the season (6th Road Win) and ending the Buccos 3 game losing streak.

Is there a better remedy for a Pirates losing streak than to see this logo?

The shutout was in tact until "Duquesne" gave up a 2 Run shot to Alfonso Soriano in the 9th.

Joel Hanrahan entered for Beimel. Tony Campana - Face Smashed. Koyie Hill - Face Smashed. Blake DeWitt - Face Smashed.

I haven't seen a group of Chicago athletes collectively pee down their leg like that since.....well.....last night against the Heat.

Mr. Perfect struck out the side and collected his 14th save on the year.

Oh and now onto the hitting......we still do that?

Andrew McCutchen went 2-4 picking up an RBI and 2 SBs. Steve Pearce picked up an RBI on a sac fly in the 2nd.

The Buccos managed to score 2 Runs in the 4th frame with just an infield single. Cubs starter Doug Davis walked Cedeno, Tabata and McCutchen in the inning. Steve Pearce also reached base on a HBP by Davis. Neil Walker's infield single scored Tabs after Cutch had driven in Cedeno on a BB in his AB. Matt Diaz left the bases juiced to end the 4th with a fly out to right.

5 times the Pirates stranded a man at third, they left 12 men on base for the game.

Cubs again tomorrow, 1:05 at Wrigley, the baseball grind continues.
