Pirates defeat Nationals, draft yet another college pitcher

The Pirates drafted Clemson left-handed pitcher Daniel Moskos in the first round of the 2007 draft. Yes that's right, they have not learned their lesson. This frustrates me enough that I don't feel like talking about it, especially since it's 1:00 AM. Here's a few links to some info on Moskos.

The Pirates defeated the Nationals today, 3-2. Ian Snell produced another quality start and Freddy Sanchez knocked in two with his first home run of the season. The score was tied at two entering the 9th, but Jason Bay took care of that. He led off the inning with an opposite field home run, and Matt Capps secured the victory with a 1-2-3 bottom of the 9th. Capps pitched two innings today due to his upcoming suspension, and retired all six batters he faced.

The Pirates visit Yankee Stadium on Friday night to kick off three games with the Bronx Bombers. A sweep of the hated Yankees would be a real lift to my weekend.
