These were the ERA's of the Pirates pitchers before they came in and held the Rockies to one run tonight. In case you can't tell by this, the Pirates are a bad baseball team. A bad baseball team that's now handed the Rockies three defeats in four tries in the last two weeks.
It doesn't matter where the game's played at, losing to the Pirates is only something other bad baseball teams do. Because you can't handle the frickin' Pirates, Rockies, you have no business thinking about the playoffs this year. You should think about your golf swings, because that's what losing baseball teams do. Think about your golf swings and not baseball. You won't be playing baseball for much longer.
Seriously, go home, and think about what you just did. You lost to the Pirates, a team who can barely cobble together a AAAA pitching staff, and you've lost to them three times. Three. Yeah, whatever excuse you want, Rockies, but it's the friggin' Pirates.
There were plenty of goats tonight:
After striking out three times tonight and going zero for four, Miguel Olivo has just eight hits in 52 AB's since the All Star break for a .154 batting average. Carlos Gonzalez, batting third, also reverted to a road zombie and went hitless as did Jason Giambi batting fifth. Jeff Francis allowed a two run home run to Ronny Cedeno. He apparently didn't watch Wade LeBlanc's 7/25 start against Pittsburgh, as LeBlanc too was caught napping against the Pirates light hitting shortstop.
Troy Tulowitzki was credited with three hits (one was a bit of a gift) to lead what offense there was from the Rockies.
