Pirates Vs. Twins: Bucs Nearly No-Hit In 10-0 Loss

The Pittsburgh Pirates struggled mightily in all aspects in their 10-0 loss to the Minnesota Twins Sunday afternoon.

The Pirates were without a hit for the first seven innings, until Brandon Boggs was able to get a hit in the eighth inning. He was thrown out trying to stretch the hit out to a double. Francisco Liriano was the prime culprit of the Pirates' hitting woes, as he struck out six batters in five innings.

Charlie Morton got the start for the Pirates, where he allowed five runs on seven hits while striking out two in three innings. He allowed all five runs in the second inning.

Evan Meek, Juan Cruz, Jared Hughes and Tony Watson did well in relief, as they all pitched clean innings. Chris Leroux and Tim Wood allowed the game to get even more out of hand in the eighth as the two combined to allow five more runs.

The Pirates return to action on Tuesday when they will play the New York Yankees.
