Scott wrote: Actually Kramer, no they didn't. Last year, the Cardinals were 7.5 games behind in the wild card at this point in the season and despite what people say now, I don't remember too many people thinking the Cardinals were going to make the greatest comeback in baseball history down the stretch. This year, the Cards were a single game behind the Bucs with 3 games in St. Louis. This was a bigger series for the Cardinals then it was the Bucs and IMO, not winning means they choked away the chance to make their move. Now, they have to find a way to finish up the home stand on a positive note and figure out a way to steal some wins on a 10 game road trip that goes to Cincy, Pitt and Washington.
After the worst homestand of the year, I think this series was more important for the Bucs. The Cards have been there, done that. They know how to handle the pennant race, and could still make it in. 2 games out is a lot better than 7.5. The Bucs on the other hand haven't been in a pennant race since 1997. The Cards have the resiliency to bounce back, whereas losing the 19-inning game yesterday could've turned the Bucs into a downward spiral once again just like last year.

Congrats Bucs

I remember the Cardinals making a comeback and they wound up winning the whole damn thing. Didn't I tell you after that I didn't wanna hear you complain about them? ;)

RTJR! Pedro's solo shot and a 2-RBI single for Cutch gives Wandy his first win as a Pirate. This time, the 19th inning yields a much better outcome for the Bucs, and the magic number is now down to 15. This is win #67!

If the Bucs lose this game, Jose Tabata will be the sole person to blame. That's 3 stupid plays in his last 2 at bats.
Pittsburgh Pirates 8/19/12
Wow, to the 15th we go! This is the longest game the Bucs have played this year.
Pittsburgh Pirates 8/19/12
Ugh, Tabata. *facepalm*
Pittsburgh Pirates 8/19/12
It's a good thing the Bucs are headed to SD and get a couple extra hours with the time change, they're gonna need it after this one. On to the 13th we go, this is a marathon today!
Pittsburgh Pirates 8/19/12
This home plate ump's strike zone is all over the place, he's been very inconsistent with the same location being called a strike for one batter and a ball for the next.
Pittsburgh Pirates 8/19/12
Alright, who's ready for a little extra baseball this afternoon? 9 ain't enough in this one, still tied at 2 and we're going to the 10th.
Pittsburgh Pirates 8/19/12
Don't let them beat you Cardinals.
St. Louis Cardinals 8/19/12
This looks like it's gonna be another one going right down to the wire. Bucs get on the board and tie it at 2-2 in the 6th.
Pittsburgh Pirates 8/19/12
Go Bucs!!!
