Braves 0, Pirates 5: Winning with Errors

Braves ((18-18)000000000080
Pirates (18-19)00003002-554
W: Zach Duke (2-2) L: Jair Jurrjens (4-3)


In the first game of their double-header against the Braves, the Pirates somehow managed to win despite committing 4 errors. Yes, 4 errors. That’s a lot.

Also, the winner, Zach Duke, allowed 5 hits and walked 5 over 6 innings. How many runs did he allow? Why zero, of course. Strange, strange game, which also serves as the adjective for the Pirates march to almost .500 ball. The win moved the Pirates into a tie for fourth place, a height they haven’t seen in a while.
