Staying hot
If the Pirates would have managed to follow their first two wins in Detroit with a clunker against a rookie lefty soft-tosser, I don’t think anyone would have been too surprised.

If the Pirates would have managed to follow their first two wins in Detroit with a clunker against a rookie lefty soft-tosser, I don’t think anyone would have been too surprised. But they didn’t – the bats mostly stayed hot and Francisco Liriano was able to deliver a very strong start to complete the sweep.

Nice to see Liriano actually get a W on the board – it’s weird to still see his record on the wrong side of .500, and while Cole and AJ get most of the pub, he’s still been very very good this year. And a seven inning shutout performance is impressive against a powerful, righty-heavy Tiger lineup.

Meanwhile, Neil Walker finished out a terrific – hopefully breakout – series with four hits, while the team tallied thirteen (plus seven walks). Francisco Cervelli started it off with a homer and everyone in the lineup contributed – most of them multiple times.

Antonio Bastardo had a hiccup in the eighth, allowing three runs to bring the Tigers within one (before the Bucs re-padded the lead). He’s been terrific lately but was off from the start in this one – he probably should have been yanked sooner, but Hurdle understandably wanted to sneak a day off for Watson and Melancon. As it turned out, he ended up bringing both in (though both only faced one hitter). A minor inconvenience, yes, but can’t complain much about what the Bucs were able to pull off in the Motor City against a surprisingly vulnerable Tiger team.
