Fans at PNC Park began the season by falling asleep, but then the Pirates provided enough of a jolt to keep folks interested into September. And while they're still just two and a half games out of the wild card, the Buccos have lost 10 of 13, including a sweep at Milwaukee over the weekend that bled into a listless home loss to the Astros on Monday afternoon. Plenty of Yinzers are used to this song and dance, and they can sense what's coming. By the eighth inning Monday, it was lullaby and goodnight for this dude.
