Sloppy in the field and punchless at the plate. The past two days in New York were ugly ones for the Pittsburgh Pirates.
The injury-ravaged Nationals threw out a lineup that included four players hitting .192 or worse. Getting opportunities wasn't an issue. Taking advantage of them was another matter entirely. Washington stranded at least one runner in every inning.
The bagel next to Charlie Morton's record is gone. All it took was a little tinkering with the Pittsburgh Pirates lineup, a familiar face at the back of the bullpen and a right-fielder who is quickly achieving cult status.
Charlie Morton gave up one hit after the second inning. The first five batters he faced, though, spoiled his day.
Poor control and the inability to hold runners might for a bad combination for Charlie Morton.
Charlie Morton was left trying to figure out how a promising outing unraveled so quickly. The Pittsburgh Pirates are seemingly always searching for answers in how to beat Kyle Lohse.
Pittsburgh Pirates catcher Tony Sanchez has practiced the play many times. Scoop a pitch in the dirt on a strikeout, make the throw to first base for an easy out.
Clay Buchholz pitched three hitless innings, Mike Carp hit a long homer and the Boston Red Sox beat a Pittsburgh Pirates split squad 4-1 on Sunday.

Michael Wacha is glad he's graduated to a pennant race.
Ryan Zimmerman drove in four runs, Adam Dunn homered and Jason Marquis won his second in a row after previously going winless all season as the Nationals beat the Pirates 8-1 in a matchup of last-place clubs Sunday.
"The first inning was really long. Couldn't repeat pitches. That ran the pitch count up there pretty quickly," Morton said. "Some of my pitches just flattened out today."
"I won. I got a win," he said. "I don't think I really pitched great. I think I pitched pretty well limiting the guys that got on from scoring."
