Game Recap - 9/6/10

Written by Joe Lucia on .

Pirates 3 (46-91), Braves 1 (79-59) WP: Burres (3-3) LP: Hanson (9-11) SV: Hanrahan (4) When you outhit your opponent 8-4, you should win the game. That...didn't happen today. The Braves got 8 hits, but all were singles. They stranded 11 men on base, went 0/6 with runners in scoring position, and stranded 8 men over the final 4 innings. That...is not a good way to score runs. 2 men really shined today, but got no help from the rest of the offense: Derrek Lee and Jason Heyward each had a pair of hits and a walk. But...Omar Infante and Martin Prado combined to go 0/9. Yeah, pretty big failure right there. Tommy Hanson didn't pitch a bad game...he only allowed 6 baserunners in 6 innings, and struck out 4. The big blow was a 6th inning homer by Neil Walker to dead center that gave the Pirates a lead they wouldn't relinquish. Their Pirates got their first run without a hit: walk, stolen base, error, ground out. You can't give up runs like that, but they happen sometimes...the offense is supposed to pick you up. They didn't do that today! Kyle Farnsworth continued his hot pitching with a 10 pitch 7th, and Peter Moylan threw an even easier 7 pitch 8th. At least the bullpen is going well. Some good news...the Phillies lost the first game of their doubleheader with the Marlins this afternoon, so the lead in the east remains a game. If they win tonight, it'll be a half game, while if they lose, it'll be a game and a half. That half game will disappear on Thursday, so don't get too attached to it. Tomorrow, the Braves have another favorable pitching matchup..but that didn't work out too well today, now did it? Tim Hudson vs James McDonald. I like McDonald...but he's no Tim Hudson. Braves need a win pretty badly, and have lost 6 of their last 7 on the road. Can't happen in a playoff race.
