Losing streak continues

Welp, the Pirates lost again today.  In some afternoon-action at Wrigley Field, the Bucs lost 7-4 to the Cubs.

James McDonald couldn’t make it out of the fourth inning, and threw 83 pitches in just 3.2 innings.  The Bucs were able to come back against James Rusin and got the score to 4-3 thanks to an RBI by Gaby Sanchez and two from Pedro Alvarez.  With that, Jared Hughes came in with one out in the sixth and a runner on.  He drilled a batter, and served up a three-run bomb to Starlin Castro to make it 7-3.  Cutch went to the opposite-field for his 27th home run of the year to make it 7-4, but it didn’t matter.

Pirates (72-71) – Cubs (57-87)

Win: Rusin (1-2)
Loss: McDonald (12-8)
Save: Marmol (20)
