Pittsburgh outhits the Mets but comes up short

Today the Pirates outhit the Mets 11-6 but still lost the game 5-7. This drops the Pirates to 29-58 on the season for a .333 win percentage. While .333 is good as a batting average, it is not good as a win percentage. In fact, this is now the worst record in Major League Baseball. The perennially worst team in the majors, the Kansas City Royals, won tonight, improving their record to 30-54 for a .357 win percentage. Oh, Pittsburgh…
A few days ago I asserted that the Pirates probably led the league in 1-run losses. I was right. An article on pirates.com the other day mentioned that not only do they lead the league this year in 1-run losses, they set the all-time record for 1-run losses by this point in the season for any major league team ever. Dear Kevin McClatchy, please spend some money to get the Pirates some starting pitchers who were born before 1980.
