Neil Walker, Pedro Alvarez and Andrew McCutchen homered, but the Brewers' Cody Ransom hit a two-out grand slam in the bottom of the eighth and Milwaukee beat the Pirates 10-7 Friday night.

After returning to action following the All-Star Break, Bucco starting pitcher James McDonald allowed five runs in 4 2/3 innings in a shaky sho

Forgive us if we’ve been down this road before, even if, over the past two decades, it’s been the road less taken. Last year, riding a wave of excellent pitching, timely hitting and unlikely heroes, the Pirates jumped out to a 47-43 record, entering the All-Star break above .500 for the first time since 1992.

On July 19 they were 51-44 and in sole possession of first place in the N.L. Central – the latest in the season they had been atop the division since 1997.

The Giants Pedro Sandoval hit a three-run triple off Justin Verlander to highlight a five-run first inning for the National League as the senior circuit shut-out the American League 8-0 in the 2012 All-Star Game in Kansas City.

With home field advantage on the line, soon-to-be-retired third baseman Chipper Jones of the Braves said a few words before the All-Star Game to fire up his National League teammates.

Neil Walker tied a career high with five hits on the day while Andrew McCutchen blasted two, two-run home runs to lead the Pirates over the Giants, 13-2. A.J. Burnett earned his 10th win on the season, throwing six plus innings and only surrendering two runs.

The Pittsburgh Pirates took advantage of their last game before the All-Star break and midpoint of the season.

James McDonald allowed only one run on four hits while striking out 10 batters en route to a 3-1 victory for the Pirates over the San Francisco Giants. Neil Walker and Mike McKenry provided the offense for the Bucs, both with multiple hits on the afternoon.

James McDonald did not look at today’s game as a statement to not being selected to the 2012 N.L All-Star roster. But his performance in today’s game sure got a message across.

Despite another phenomenal night at the plate by Andrew McCutchen, who had three hits and drove in two runs, the Pirates fell to the San Francisco Giants, 6-5. Bucs' starter Erik Bedard gave up five runs in the fourth inning, and the Pirates could not overcome the deficit.

One rough inning for Erik Bedard proved to be the turning point in what started out looking like another quality game for the Pittsburgh Pirat

Jeff Karstens threw eight scoreless innings and struck out eight batters en route to a 2-0 Pirates win.

Tonight, the Pirates accomplished something that they hadn’t done in 43 years---they swept the Astros at home.

July means trade rumors. Losing teams look for the most return from their good players. Winning teams scour the market as their fans dream about the addition of an All-Star.

But the Pittsburgh Pirates, baseball's surprise contender as leader of the NL Central, should think about addition by subtraction. I'm talking about a four-man rotation.

Who was the only Pirates relief pitcher that did NOT appear in last July's 19-inning Jerry Meals debacle? Joe Beimel pitched. So did Chris Resop and Jose Veras. The correct answer... Joel Hanrahan.

Daniel McCutchen was allowed to labor through 92 pitches while the Pirates' best reliever sat alone in the bullpen and

This has been a rough basketball season for fans of Division 1 hoops in this part of the state. Usually tough Robert Morris is struggling to stay at .500. Big Ten losses continue to pile up in State College. Even NCAA tourney staple Pitt is under .500 in the ACC.
