    John Wehner talks about wanting to make Gallardo throw a lot of pitches. McCutchen responds by hitting the first pitch right at the third baseman for a groundout. Tabata then takes 2 pitches and hits one right at Fielder for a lineout. Jones also takes 2 pitches then hits a ball right at Rickie Weeks for a groundout.

    7 pitches.

    Way to go.

    Weeks goes down looking at a 94 MPH fastball right on the low outside corner.
    Gomez pops up right in front of the plate, third base side. Alvarez calls off Snyder for the easy putout.
    Braun takes the same fastball away 3 times, 2 for balls and 1 for a strike. Fouls off the next one, then hits a little grounder on a check swing that bounces right off of Lyle Overbay. That's his 4th error, all on pretty easy plays this year. His much publicized defense has been pretty bad all year.
    Braun steals second, but Fielder pops up the next pitch behind second.

    Walker lines a ball to right for a base hit.
    Pedro becomes the first Pirate to see more than 3 pitches with a 5 pitch walk. First and second with no outs.
    Overbay works a full count, but pops up to left, about 20 feet in front of the track. Yuniesky Betancourt falls over trying to catch the throw into the infield for some reason.
    2 on and 1 out for Snyder. Count goes full again and Snyder hits a flyball to fairly deep right that Corey Hart tracks down in foul territory. Runners tag, which actually doesn't help a ton with Cedeno then the pitcher.
    No intentional walk here, but the first 4 pitches are nowhere close. Cedeno has the green light 3-0 and decides to take a rip, but it's at a ball way off the plate. Next pitch he walks anyway. Not sure why they didn't try the intentional walk, as the strategy they used always leaves the potential for a wild pitch or the pitcher just missing and leaving one over the plate. Cedeno's swing probably wasn't so bad as it forced another pitch where there's always a chance something goes wrong.
    Bases loaded for J-Mac. Takes two borderline strikes, fouls a ball off, then takes 2 borderline balls before striking out.

    Much better ABs that inning, and Gallardo did throw 30 pitches, but the Pirates have nothing to show for it.

    McDonald gets ahead of McGehee 0-2 then throws 3 straight balls. McGehee takes a pitch off the plate outside, but McDonald gets a called strike 3. I swear Alfonso Marquez has the most inconsistent strike zone. Worked in McDonald's favor that time.
    Corey Hart gets a bit of a hanging curve, but he swings through it for strike 3.
    Yuni Betancourt hits a flyball to right-center. McCutchen and Jones almost collide, but Jones gets out of the way in time.

    Nice quick inning.

    McCutchen has a bit longer AB, but grounds to SS. Nearly beats a throw at first.
    Tabata works a full count and walks.
    Tabata takes off early and is picked off. He gets into a rundown, and somehow he's called safe on a tag play away from the base. Replays show he's clearly out, but after a lengthy umpire meeting they leave him at second base. Break for the Pirates.
    Jones also ends up with a full count, but flies to left field.
    Walker gets ahead in the count 2-1, but grounds to Rickie Weeks for the third out.

    Still 0-0 after 2.5.

    Lucroy gets ahead 3-1, then turns on a fastball in. Line drive just barely over the line for a HR. 1-0 Milwaukee. That was their first hit of the game.
    Gallardo hits a slow roller to third. Pedro barehands and fires to first, but it's not in time. Infield hit for the opposing pitcher. Looks like he was out on the replay.
    Weeks rips a ball right down the line past third. Into the corner for a double. Second and third no outs. McDonald missed his spot badly with a changeup.
    McDonald again gets behind 3-1 to Gomez. 3 balls were nowhere close. Count goes full and Gomez goes down swinging. Big K there. 1 out.

    First pitch to Braun is a fastball way in. Next pitch is grounded hard at third. For some reason they don't go home with it and allow Gallardo to score the second run. Stupid play. Weeks is caught between second and third and they get him in a rundown. Cedeno tags out Weeks and for some reason Weeks starts jawing with him. Benches clear over a complete non-incident.

    Milwaukee is ridiculous.

    Fielder walks.
    McGehee also ahead in the count 3-1. Braun steals third. Not as meaningful since Fielder stayed at first. McGehee ends up striking out.

    31 pitch inning.

    Alvarez with the typical Alvarez AB. Takes a fastball for a strike on the outer half, fouls a ball off, then swings through a high fastball for the K.
    Overbay rips one toward the middle. Rickie Weeks almost takes it off his face, but it goes right past him into the outfield.
    Big shift on the righty Snyder. He apparently hasn't hit a ball to the right side all year. Snyder takes two straight strikes, gets back even, then can't check his swing on a pitch way down low.
    Cedeno rips one to deep left field. Just keeps carrying and it's out of there. I actually kind of jokingly called it to my brother. I knew he was fired up after the incident with Weeks.

    2-2 now.

    McDonald actually had a good AB, but ended up grounding to 2B.

    Corey Hart got a first pitch fastball in a really bad location and drove it off the wall in left for a double.
    Yuniesky Betancourt grounds out to Alvarez. He looks Hart back and gets the out at first.
    Lucroy gets ahead 3-0. This didn't go well last time. They actually have Hart picked off at second, but the throw isn't good and he's safe. Lucroy walks to make it second and third one out for Gallardo.
    Gallardo's not bunting as he takes strike one. Next pitch he shows bunt ridiculously early, then swings away for strike two. Third pitch he swings and it's up the middle. Pitcher drives in the go ahead run in an 0-2 count. Ridiculous.

    First pitch to Weeks almost hits him. Not sure if it was intentional, though, as he is just all over the place. He ends up walking him. Bases loaded and still just one out. McDonald isn't going to last much longer.

    Gomez strikes out on a pretty bad AB. Two outs. Bases still loaded for Braun.
    First pitch bounces. Next pitch is into center field and two runs score. Terrible pitch again. McDonald just can't hit spots today at all.
