Pirates Takeaways: Bucs Fall Flat in All Three Facets in Loss To Braves (+)



Pittsburgh Pirates, MLB Offseason

PITTSBURGH — Hitting, pitching and defense. Good teams excel at two of these. Great teams excel at all three.

In the Pittsburgh Pirates’ 14-2 loss to the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday at PNC Park, they fell way short in all three.

“This one got out of hand quickly and then it got out of hand even more,” Pirates manager Derek Shelton said.

The Pirates were shut down by Kyle Wright (16-5). He went seven scoreless innings and only allowed a pair of singles. Wright was efficient, needing 73 pitches to get through his outing.

Their first run of the game for Pittsburgh didn’t come until the ninth inning when Kevin Newman hit a solo home run to left field.
