The Pirates defeated the Marlins tonight 5-1. In Florida. It marks the Bucs 17th road win of the season. On October 1st.
Pittsburgh has played 6-month's of baseball and have just 17 road wins? How can that be? I know the Pirates are horrendous but 17 away wins? Yikes, that's really, really, really bad. I didn't realize they were so terrible in opposing yards.
The Pirates are 17-62 away from PNC Park, a whopping 45-games under .500 on the road. I would do some research on where they stand among worst road teams of all-time but I'm too tired to do so now.
At 57-103, Pittsburgh finished with a somewhat respectable 40-41 record at home this season. I thought the Rockies were a bad ballclub. Compared to Pittsburgh on the road the Rockies are road warriors.
