You have the company’s 100-club inglorious defeats.
The Pirates of 2010 came in so ignominious a group, becoming the eighth edition of 124 teams in the franchise to reach triple figures in defeat after a 10-7 loss to Houston tonight before a quiet 22,279 watching history unfold Inside the PNC Park.
James McDonald, bidding to become the first Pirates starter with a winning record since Brian Burres was 2-1 on May 6, threw a handful of places and developed a blister that caused him to make his early exit Pirates yet. It lasted just four innings and left the tie 3-3.
The Astros put their first four batters on base against McDonald, scoring twice for a 2-0 lead. The Pirates came back with a run in the bottom of the first time in one Andrew McCutchen, an error in an infield hit by Jose Tabata and a groundout that scored Garret Jones McCutchen a deficit of 2-1.
Houston added a run in the second, and the Pirates tied the game in Jones’ two-out, two-run double in the third inning. It was the first time in 18 games Jones met three RBIs. The total amount involved in games: one.
The visitors broke the tie with a run off reliever Daniel McCutchen in the fifth inning with consecutive singles with two outs scoring Hunter Pence singled before.
The Pirates regained the lead in the fifth thanks to Jones again – his fourth RBI on a sacrifice fly, scored the second of his career. Pedro Alvarez doubled high wall to right center to drive in Delwyn Young, who followed on foot Andrew McCutchen with one of their own, to take a 5-4 lead, the Pirates.
From there, the Astros took control of the game with a four-run sixth and Chris Daniel McCutchen Leroux, emphasizes that Pence’s two-run double.
The loss means that the Pirates can not finish with a .500 record at home, being 38-41 with only two more to play in PNC Park this weekend.
With nine games left, remain possibilities to develop further losses in 1985 and 1953 (in 104) for the worst season for the Pirates from the 112-loss 1952.
