Padres Vs. Pirates: Bucs Suffer Another Embarrassing Loss

The Pirates lost 13-2 on Saturday, running their losing streak to nine.

The Pirates endured yet another blowout with a 13-2 loss against the San Diego Padres at PNC Park on Saturday, and they're now in the midst of a nine-game losing streak.

The Padres scored two runs in the second inning and didn't look back, tacking on three more in the fourth and six more in the seventh, thanks to numerous perfectly-placed balls, poor defense by Ronny Cedeno, and a grand slam off Chris Resop by Kyle Blanks.

Meanwhile, Padres starter Cory Luebke breezed through the Pirates lineup, striking out nine batters in seven innings. The Pirates struck out a total of 11 times on the game and did not walk once. 

In the late innings, after the game had already been lost, Cedeno failed to field a ground ball, appearing to not bend down for it. He and Clint Hurdle then had a spirited conversation about it in the dugout. It would not be surprising if Cedeno were benched for Sunday's game.
