Pirates No Match For Matt Belisle's First Pitch Strikes, 8-1
So, this seemed like a familiar beginning to the game. The Reds starter began the game very effectively, but the position players weren't to interested in reaching base, much less wasting time continuing all the way around to home plate. Both pitchers were perfect through through and third. But then Hambone drew a walk and Conine doubled him home. Gorzelanny heeded the author's advice and decided not to mislead Pirates fans any longer. He is a Pirates starter and from now on, will pitch like one. The offense added some more runs and B-Lizzle was outstanding. You hear me? Outstanding! 93 pitches is all that he felt like throwing tonight and each and every one was double filthy. Nicely done team. Plan on a series win tomorrow. Reds! Reds! Reds!
