Talk about a big time blow out loss for the Pittsburgh Pirates as they were beat Tuesday evening 16-5 by the Chicago White Sox. All four Pirates pitchers in the game gave up atleast one run while three of them gave up aleast three or more runs! Four home runs by the White Sox sure didn’t help either.
Starting pitcher Ian Snell dropped to 3-7 on the season as he took the loss for the Pirates. Snell pitched four innings and gave up nine hits, seven runs, and walked six batters. Now that is a terrible job by the starting pitcher!
Franquelis Osoria came in and pitched two innings while giving up four hits and three runs including a home run. Marino Salas had a terrible outing after Osoria left the game as he only recorded two outs and gave up two home runs and five runs. Sean Burnett wanted his turn and got it as he pitched 1 2/3 innings giving up one run. Terrible outing by all four Pirates pitchers.
Jason Michaels led the Pirates at the plate with two rbi. Both runs scored in the second inning when he had a two run double. Jose Bautista hit a solo home run to account for his rbi while Nate McLouth and Doug Mientkiewicz also had one rbi each in the game.
I wouldn’t expect another blow out that bad on Wednesday when the two teams face off again. Atleast I hope it is a little bit closer lol.
