Game 148: Astros 9 Pirates 7

Anyways, if you had "September 15th" or "148 games" in your tragic number poll for the date the Pirates would lose their 82nd game, you're a big winner! This was a great game for the Pirates to have to clinch the 2nd losing franchise losing streak in baseball history. Some high lowlights:

  • You knew Matt Morris had to start this one. It's only fitting.
  • Pirates race out to a 5-0 lead, then blow it.
  • Ronny Paulino homered, but we wasted it.
  • Jack Wilson homered twice, but we wasted it.
  • Pirate cast-off Ty Wigginton, who was acquired in lieu of Ryan Howard, then flat out cut a year and a half later, homered twice for the Astros.
  • The loss came to the last place Astros.
Welcome to The Canyon, Mr. Coonelly. We hope you can find a way to lead us out. Please.
