Enhanced Box Score: Pirates 8, Cubs 4 – August 1, 2012

Travis Wood wasn’t awful today, but he wasn’t economical, and he could go just five innings … which was unfortunate, because the bullpen got slapped around. Unfortunately it was Shawn Camp on the receiving end of most of the slapping, taking his erstwhile pristine ERA all the way up to the mid-3’s.

Alberto Cabrera saw his first action and struck out two while cleaning up Camp’s mess.

The offense didn’t much feel like showing up until the 9th (when the Pirates did the old closer-in-a-non-save-situation thing), outside of Starlin Castro’s first inning homer.

I arguably could have highlighted LaHair here, and the Marmol highlight is with the understanding that McCutchen’s hit was a little dribbler on a good pitch…
