Game 59 Recap: Pirates 3, Braves 1

Jeeeeeezzz! Our offense still sucks. Even on a day with Jeff Francoeur gets two hits, a walk, a stolen base, and an RBI, we can't even muster more than one run. We got a fantastic pitching performance from Javier Vazquez -- 2 hits and 12 strikeouts over 8 innings. Rafael Soriano, pitching in his fifth inning (fourth appearance) in the last five days, didn't have his best stuff and gave up the winning run in the ninth, but with that kind of overuse who can blame him.

Something has got to change with this offense... it's making me ill.

Rookie Barbaro Canizares, 29-year old rookie Barbaro Canizares, made his major league debut and got his first major league hit while batting cleanup and playing first base.
