The Pirates' ship is taking on water -- fast. And the faster Clint Hurdle bails, the faster the water seems to rush in.
They lost again to Arizona, 3-0, Sunday at PNC Park to finish off a forgettable homestand with just three wins in nine games, including dropping all four to the Diamondbacks.
How bad was the homestand?
Against the Diamondbacks, the Pirates managed a meager six runs, capped off by the shutout before an announced crowd of 19,207. Over the course of the nine games -- three against Cincinnati and two against Milwaukee -- Pittsburgh scored a total of 24 runs, half of which came in back-to-back games against the Reds.
