Bucs Offense Again Anemic

Jason Marquis came within one out of tossing a complete game. He was more than good enough through 8-2/3 to win, allowing only a solo dinger to Jack Wilson in the 7th before tiring and allowing two runs in the 9th. He gave way to Alan Embree to finish it.

Ross Ohlendorf gave up all six of the Rockies runs. Brad Hawpe and Troy Tulowitzki each homered to support Marquis. Todd Helton had three hits an scored three times.

Eric HInske and Andrew McCutchen delivered two out RBI in the 9th to chase Marquis.

The Good

Cutch had two hits – a double and a triple.

The Bad

Is it possible that Jim Tracy is directly responsible for Colorado’s turn around?

Delwyn Young was held hitless. He had two walks.

The Rest

The last time the Pirates had back-to-back complete games thrown at them was against Colorado on 8/5/98 and 8/6/98. The winning pitchers were Jamey Wright and John Thomson. It almost happened again.

Marquis has nine career wins against Pittsburgh, tying them for most against any franchise along with Houston.

The Pirates DFAd Craig Monroe and recalled Steve Pearce.
