Game 145: Pirates 7 Brewers 4

I think we can call this, "delaying the inevitable." It looked like the Pirates were going to piss away a lead for their 82nd loss in 2007, but then we destroyed Derek Turnbow and took home yet another win against the, erm, cream of the NL Central crop. Not much else to say about this one, Steven Pearce had a couple of hits and a couple of RBI and the callup to Pittsburgh certainly hasn't seemed to stem his hitting at all. I think that first big league dinger is coming any day now. Also, including his game-breaking 2-run triple off of Turnbow in the eighth, Josh Phelps now has two triples as a Pirate. I dunno, I think that's one of the more unlikely stats of the year.
