Pirates fans might not like that the team with the second-best record in the major leagues during the regular season has to play a winner-take-all National League wild card game. But most everyone in baseball is happy with the current setup.
Manager Clint Hurdle faces a tough decision on who to play at first base in the wild card, former bench coach Jeff Banister does an outstanding job in his first season as the Texas Rangers' manager and the Pirates have had a marvelous season anyway you slice it.
PITTSBURGH --A.J. Burnett took the loss in what could be the final game of his 17-year career as the Pirates dropped a 3-1 decision to the lowly Cincinnati Reds on Saturday night at PNC Park.
Starling Marte’s two-run home run in the bottom of the 12th inning lifted the Pirates to a 6-4 victory over Cincinnati on Friday night, getting them closer to clinching home-field advantage in the National League wild card game and extending the Reds’ losing streak to 13 games.

PNC PARK – The Pirates are likely going to have to get past Jake Arrieta and the Chicago Cubs for this speculation to even matter but might Clint Hurdle have revealed his postseason rotation Wednesday?

Francisco Cervelli hit a grand slam and Gerrit Cole pitched seven innings for his 19th win as the Pirates beat the St. Louis Cardinals 8-2 on Wednesday afternoon in the opener of a day-night doubleheader at PNC Park to keep alive their slim hopes of winning the National League Central.
Catcher Francisco Cervelli's second career grand slam snapped a 1-1 tie in the fourth inning and lifted the Pirates to an 8-2 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday in the opener of a day-night doubleheader.
One thing is certain. Gerrit Cole is going to get his close-up in the wild card game against the Cubs on October 7, whether he’s ready for it or not. Is Cole up to it? We’re a week away from finding out.
The Pirates’ scheduled game with the St. Louis Cardinals on Tuesday night was postponed because of rain and rescheduled as a day-night doubleheader on Wednesday at PNC Park.
The Pittsburgh Pirates have the second-best record in the major leagues and one of the big reasons why is the work of general manager Neal Huntington.
Right now, the Pirates have to be the best team in MLB. An eight-game win streak in the pressure cooker of September baseball confirms. But the Pirates can’t beat Chicago ace Jake Arrieta.

CHICAGO – The Pirates probably must sweep the Cardinals to have a shot at the division title, and it doesn’t help the Cardinals finish at the lowly Braves (though Shelby Miller and Julio Teheran are in line to pitch. Wouldn’t Miller love to beat his former team?). If the Pirates cannot catch the Cardinals they […]
