Jeff Locke’s “solid start- poor start” trend continued Wednesday night

  • Jeff Locke’s “Good Game – Bad Game – Good Game – Bad Game” trend continued Wednesday night in the Pirates 6-2 loss. Locke allowed 8 hits, 6 runs and walked 5 batters in just four innings pitched. He threw just 48 strikes on 86 pitches, facing 25 batters. “He was up in the zone with his stuff,” manager Clint Hurdle said. “The consistency wasn’t there with either the fastball or the secondary stuff. It was tough for him out there. It just wasn’t a good night for him.”
