Putting touch has deserted me, says Poulter

Poulter of England hits from the rough on the 14th hole during a practice round ahead of the British Open golf championship on the Old Course in St. Andrews, ScotlandBy Tony Jimenez WOBURN, England (Reuters) - Less than three years after his magical putter inspired a 'miracle' Ryder Cup victory for Europe, Ian Poulter says his touch on the greens has temporarily deserted him. "I'm not disappointed how I played because I thought I played good but I'm disappointed I didn't hole my fair share of putts," Poulter told Reuters in an interview. "Some weeks you just can't see the right lines, you can't visualize the ball going in the hole, and that puts the rest of your game under pressure to hit it close." Poulter showed nerves of steel when he sank five birdie putts in as many holes on the penultimate day to haul Europe out of trouble before the team went on to secure their 'Miracle of Medinah' triumph over the United States in 2012.

Back to the norm
This is what you expect when Gerrit Cole starts: a well-pitched, fast-moving, low-scoring game that ends with a Pirate victory. Kind of a boring game, honestly, but that’s perfectly fine.

This is what you expect when Gerrit Cole starts: a well-pitched, fast-moving, low-scoring game that ends with a Pirate victory. Kind of a boring game, honestly, but that’s perfectly fine.

Seriously, there isn’t a whole lot you can say about a game like this. Cole was his usual self, going right after hitters (0 walks) and mostly getting great results. Nats rookie Joe Ross pitched well, just as he did the first time he faced the Bucs, but one inning with a couple hits strung together plus a Neil Walker solo shot one inning later was plenty.

The result is a pretty darn nice weekend: three of four from a first-place team, and the Pirates even regained the game they lost to the Cardinals yesterday. The Pirates continue to play excellent baseball at home…but unfortunately, this was just a one-series homestand and it’s off to Minnesota and Cincinnati for the next week. Can they keep it rolling away from PNC?
