Notes from the Road: Pittsburgh Pirates

*Last night the Pirates won their seventh road game and third road series of the season. They are now 7-3 on the road, a .700 winning percentage. Last year the Pirates went 17-64 on the road a .210 winning percentage. They won four road series the whole season. The Bucs could lose their next 20 road games and still be ahead of last year's winning percentage.


*Kevin Correia pitched a complete game in the Pirates 9-3 win over the Reds on Monday night. It was the second complete game of the series following Charlie Morton's 6-1 complete game win on Friday night. Last year the Pirates had one complete game the entire season when Paul Maholm went the distance to beat the Houston Astros 9-0.

*Coincidentally, in both complete games against the Reds, the only earned runs came on home runs with two out in the bottom of the ninth, a solo shot against Morton and a two-run shot off Correia.

*Courtesy of Elias, it is the first time the Bucs have had more than one complete game in April since 1992 when they got three, two by Zane Smith and one by Doug Drabek.

*Courtesy of Bucs Insider, last night was the first time the Pirates and seven players record multi-hit games in a road game since May 13, 2004 against the Rockies in Colorado (pre-humidor).

*The Pirates now have a winning record in three different major league stadiums this season--Wrigley Field, Busch Stadium and Great American Ball Park. They had a winning record in only two last year.
