Pittsburgh Pirates Team Report - April 26

Postby WebHamster » Mon Apr 26, 2004 2:00 pm

(Sports Network) - Oliver Perez shined for the Pirates in their 6-0 win over Cincinnati Sunday, tossing his first career shutout while striking out 10.

Perez (2-0) scattered six hits and walked just one batter in the victory. Perez, a 22-year-old lefty, has been impressive at times in his career but the numbers haven't panned out.

Jose Castillo was 2-for-4 with a two-run homer, helping the Pirates snap a four-game skid. Rob Mackowiak and Humberto Cota added solo home runs in the victory. Raul Mondesi posted two hits for the Pirates in the win.

Pirates outfielder Tike Redman went 0-for-4 in the win, as his hitting streak ended at a career-high 10 games.

Taking the ball for the Pirates in the finale of their four-game set against Cincinnati tonight will be struggling righthander Ryan Vogelsong. Ever since looking like Cy Young against Philadelphia on April 8, Vogelsong has struggled mightily. In his last two starts, Vogelsong has been blasted for 19 hits and 15 runs over just eight innings. The 26-year-old has struck out nine and walked five in the two defeats to Chicago.

Last time on the hill, Vogelsong was tagged for nine hits and eight runs over five innings in a loss to the Cubs. Vogelsong fanned four and permitted three free passes in the defeat.

Cincinnati took two of three from the Pirates at Great American Ball Park April 9-11.

The Pirates will remain at home Tuesday night, opening up a three-game set against the Houston Astros.
