He can sit down now. This performance is very similar to one thrown by Cory Lidle as a Red.

Homer after 8...80 pitches: 15 balls, 65 strikes. 4 hits / 0 runs / 0 walks / 5 strikeouts

ERA down to 5.80 after starting the game at 7.24

Just checked in on the game and I'm shocked. Guess Bailey was watching Cueto and wanted to try and one-up him. This pitch efficiency is awesome, if admittedly helped by an ineffective Pirate offense.

whichever aliens captured Johnny & Homer you may keep them. we'll keep the dopplegangers you put in their place.

huge sweep for a few reasons.
1.evenge on the Bucs for sweeping us.
2. good teams need to beat up on the weak ones
3. we gain on the Cards who are coming into town this weekend. big series. if we take 2 of 3 from the Cards RedsZone may explode!

Excellent outing by Bailey. This type of command he showed today is what I've been hoping to see out of his development.

A sweep was paramount, and we got it. Now it's time to win two of three this weekend. I might have to get down to the park on Friday night if the weather isn't lousy.

Interestingly...of those 35...only 1 player (Newcombe) threw as many strikes as Homer. 73 out of 90.....and Newcombe gave up two runs. Absurd, remarkable, and TOTALLY unexpected!

Bailey , blah blah blah. Lets focus on what really matters.

Drew Stubbs went 2-4, scored twice and hit one out.

This is the Stubbs I think is possible. Forget leading off. The speed is a side dish. We know he can take a BB, all he has to do is show the power more, and he'll be pitched around more. More baserunners, more scoring opportunities. RH on Friday right? Stubbs in CF, Heisey in LF, but I have a feeling it will be Nix instead.

I was in court all day. Couldn't even turn my BlackBerry on to check the score. Got out about 5 and even ESPN radio wasn't cooperating on the scores. That is, until 10 minutes before I got home and they told the score. So, I get home, don't even acknowledge the wife and head to the computer. What I read was simply unbelievable. Cueto and Bailey have pitched 18 innings of 5-hit, no run, no walk baseball with 14K's. In 193 pitches. Of course, I temper my enthusiasm because I know this is the Pirates. But, heck, it's fun, isn't it.

Now we head back to reality to the St. Louis Cardinals and Albert Puljos (no, I can't spell his name). If that goes really well, you can count me as a true believer. I'm already almost there anyway.

19-15 and four over. Life is good.

The Pittsburgh paper was frank in their assessment of the hometown team, but also quite a few good quotes about the work of Bailey & Cueto.
