Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright blanked the Pirates on three hits over eight innings as St. Louis cruised to a 7-0 win over the Bucs at Busch Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

After an encouraging performance both at the plate and on the mound Saturday afternoon, the Pirates’ struggles continued, with both their offense and pitching sputtering as the Bucs dropped the rub

The Pirates bullpen threw seven shutout innings in relief of Francisco Liriano, Gaby Sanchez and Tony Sanchez each drove in two runs and the Pirates beat the Cardinals 6-1 on Saturday at Busch Stadium.

Liriano began the game on the mound for the Pirates, but only was able to go two innings, before being removed from the game with dizziness and flu-like symptoms.

The Pirates’ offense remained dormant Friday evening, despite a terrific performance from starting pitcher Gerrit Cole, falling to the St. Louis Cardinals 1-0 at Busch Stadium.

The Bucs’ lineup only mustered up four hits on the evening, with two singles coming via Jose Tabata, a double from Andrew McCutchen, and a base hit from none other than Cole himself.

After Charlie Morton lost his command three innings into his last start Friday against Milwaukee, the story was the same in his next outing Wednesday night. Morton threw four clean innings in his start against the Cincinnati Reds then allowed three runs to score in the fifth which proved to be a deciding blow in the Pirates’ 5-2 loss.

The Reds scored three runs on just one hit in the fifth, taking advantage of Morton’s command issues giving them free baserunners and the replacement of Russell Martin with Chris Stewart

The last time Johnny Cueto was in Pittsburgh, it was a nightmare. Over 40,000 people chanted his last name in unison on Oct. 1, 2013 and, at one point, he dropped the baseball which whipped the crowd into a frenzy as the Pirates went on to defeat the Reds in the National League’s Wild Card game.

But Tuesday night, it was back to business as usual for Cueto who entered PNC Park six days after he threw a complete game, three-hit shutout against Pittsburgh at Great American Ballpark

Neil Walker and the rest of the Pittsburgh Pirates probably didn’t want to play more baseball than necessary after Sunday’s 14-inning affair. Fortunately, Walker delivered his second walk-off hit of the season in the ninth inning Monday night to give his team a 6-5 win over the Cincinnati Reds in the opener of a four-game set.

His basehit fell between Cincinnati’s second baseman Brandon Phillips and right fielder Jay Bruce in shallow right field, and Bruce’s throw to home plate seemed like it would beat Pirates

The Pittsburgh Pirates are now mired in a stretch where they have lost eight of their last 10 games as a result of a 3-2 loss in 14 innings in Sunday’s series finale against the Milwaukee Brewers. Milwaukee (14-5) took three of four games from the Pirates (8-11), and two of those wins were assisted by Jason Grilli blowing a pair of saves over the weekend.

After Ryan Braun hit the game-winning home run last night against Grilli, he hit a solo shot to the left field bleachers in the top of the ninth to tie the game at 2-2.

In a game where momentum swung like a pendulum, the final swing moved in the Milwaukee Brewers’ favor. Down by one run entering the ninth inning and Pirates closer Jason Grilli on the mound, the Brewers punched themselves out of a corner and into the lead when Ryan Braun hit a two-run home run into the bullpens on the first pitch Grilli threw him.

The closer said he tried to throw a two-seam fastball that did not go where he wanted it to, “obviously.”

The Pittsburgh Pirates continue their four-game set with the Milwaukee Brewers Saturday night, looking to break a 1-1 series tie after losing last night’s game 5-3. Wandy Rodriguez (0-2, 7.31 ERA) makes his fourth start of the season today opposite Milwaukee’s Matt Garza (0-2, 3.43 ERA).
  • First baseman Ike Davis arrived in Pittsburgh today, and was added to the 25-man roster as Travis Ishikawa was designated for assignment as the corresponding move.

Through three innings Friday night, Charlie Morton was cruising. The Pirates starter struck out three hitters and allowed just a pair of baserunners.

But from the fourth inning through the sixth, the wheels fell off in an outing that manager Clint Hurdle called “a tale of two Charlies” which resulted in a 5-3 loss to the Milwaukee Brew

Expectations are high for the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2016. A revamped defensive line, featuring two of the league's best ends in Cameron Heyward and Stephon Tuitt, is one of the main reasons why.

The Steelers opened the preseason as the odd-on favorite in the AFC North, but injuries and suspensions could open the door for a still-talented Bengals team and Ravens squad looking to rebound from a disappointing 2015.

Pittsburgh Penguins’ head coach Mike Sullivan has obviously spoken several very kind words about his championship hockey team. Sullivan has complimented his team’s speed, chemistry, and teamwork. But perhaps more than anything else, Sullivan complimented their toughness.
