The Pirates had a bases loaded, 0 outs situation with Cabrera, Moran (PH for Kang), and Bell up. The first two popped up, moving no one. Bell struck out swinging at garbage. As a team, they are now 0-16 in bases-loaded situations. Inexcusable.
I really think this boils down to Hurdle and the approach he takes and wants from his hitters. They've changed the hitting coach multiple times, same problem. It doesn't seem to matter how much or little quality they have in a lineup, they score very little. Somehow, year after year, they rank in the top half in the league in BA yet near the bottom in runs. If this was just a one year thing, I wouldn't point the finger at the manager, but this has been on-going for years.
