Darn you, Travis Buck!

- A soft singe by pinch hitter Travis Buck snapped James McDonald's no-hitter attempt with one out in the fifth inning. Its spring training, so there is no way McDonald would have gone the full nine. But spring training is all about hope, right?

-So much for big McKechnie Field crowds. Haven't received a total yet, but today's attendance is nowhere near McKechnie's average (5,987) this spring. Doesn't help that the Houston Astros, easily baseball's most nameless, faceless team, is here today.

- Pirates lead 2-0. Neil Walker singled home two runs in the first, while McDonald cruised through six one-hit innings. Not bad considering he had allowed eight earned runs in his first seven innings this spring.

- Remember these?
