    I don't expect Karstens to go very deep in this game,but I hope he can give us more than four innings.

    First swing of the game: McCutchen opposite field HR
    Second swing of the game: Tabata opposite field HR
    Overbay walks without swinging
    Third swing of the game: Walker 404 ft. double
    Then Alvarez ruins it by fouling a ball off and swinging and missing once before striking out looking.

    Jones walks to load the bases with one down
    Snyder draws a 5 pitch walk to bring in a run.

    3-0 bases still loaded, one out.

    Cedeno coming to bat.

    Finally gets a strike over to Cedeno. Second pitch he drives it out to the warning track for a sac fly. Jones goes to third.

    4-0 and Karstens will come to bat before he throws his first pitch.

    Karstens actually gets a couple good swings in, but goes down looking to end the inning.

    Volquez threw 33 pitches in the inning. In 4 starts this year he's near 130 first inning pitches.

    Stubbs hits a hard grounder in the hole at SS. Cedeno gets there and makes the long throw pretty easily.
    Cairo hits a high popup to medium right. Jones is there to make the catch.
    Karstens got Votto to look at 2 2 strike pitches in the zone and both were called balls. A pitch called ball 4 looked like it might have been in the zone as well. Hard to get a guy out when he can take pitches in the zone for a ball.
    Rolen hits a ball off Karstens, but he picks it up and throws to first for the out. He seemed fine.

    4-0 after 1.

    Cutch works the count a little then slaps a line drive the other way through the hole.
    Tabata tries to murder the first pitch and misses badly. Almost fell over. A few pitches later he destroys his bat and hits a slow grounder to second. No chance at a double play, but they get the lead runner.
    Overbay swings at a 3-1 pitch that was probably ball 4, but Tabata was going on the pitch. He's in easily, but overslides the bag, Nyjer Morgan style. Throw was high, though, so it doesn't matter. That's his 8th steal of the year, which ties Matt Kemp.
    Eventually Overbay does walk for the second time this game. First and second one out.

    Walker drives the first pitch deep to right field. It hits off the wall a few feet foul. Ends up hitting a DP ball to second base.

    4-0 Pirates after one.

    Volquez up around 55 pitches through 2.

    Jonny Gomes HRs for the third time this series. He may not know much about hairstyles or even how to spell his own name, but he sure does have power.
    Jay Bruce strikes out looking
    Ramon Hernandez flies out fairly deep to right.
    Paul Janish with a hard chopper at third. Pedro makes a really nice play to handle a bad hop and throws him out.

    4-1 after 2.

    Pedro pulls an outside pitch, and it's a predictable two hopper to the second baseman.
    Jones also grounds to the second baseman. Had trouble with a changeup there.
    Snyder fouls a ball off, then takes a strike to get behind 0-2. He then swings at a curve in the dirt for the K.

    4-1 after 2.5. Looks like this will be one of those games where the offense scores a couple runs early then just quits.

    Volquez took a strike without even being in the batters box and later struck out on a pitch that was so far outside it might have been past the other batters box.
    Stubbs drives a ball to center. It just keeps carrying, but McCutchen eventually tracks it down near the wall.
    Ump just isn't calling low pitches for Karstens, and Cairo gets ahead 2-0 on possible strikes. Next pitch he kind of lays in there and Cario lines it to left.
    Votto strikes out swinging. Big swing and he was was early on the fastball.

    Cedeno grounds out to 3B
    Karstens grounds out to SS
    McCutchen walks
    Tabata up to bat and Cutch takes off for second. He's safe easily, but is tagged out after he slides through the bag, Nyjer Morgan style. He's now 1-4 on stolen bases this year while Tabata is 8-9. I think McCutchen now leads the league in caught stealing. He's tied for second in the team in stolen bases at 1. The other guys with 1: Alvarez and Jaramillo.
