MATT GARZA waited 10 months to take the mound again, but he will have to wait a little longer to get a victory. Travis Snider hit a pinch-hit grand slam during a five-run sixth and the Pittsburgh Pirates spoiled a strong return to the mound for Garza with a 5-4 win over the visiting Chicago Cubs last night. Garza allowed one hit over five shutout innings in his first outing in 10 months, but the Pirates pounced on a Chicago bullpen that is 10th in the National League in ERA by sending 11 men to the plate in the sixth.

Washington's Bryce Harper was ejected from Sunday's game against Pittsburgh for arguing with - and showing up - third base umpire John Hirschbeck. It happened in the first inning. Harper tried to hold up on a 2-2 pitch and home plate umpire Bob Davidson pointed to Hirschbeck for help. Hirschbeck signaled strike, at which point Harper stood outside the batter's box, eyeballed the ump, dropped his bat, and got the boot. Didn't matter, as the Nationals won, 6-2. Harper was also tossed Aug. 29, when he spiked his helmet after grounding into a double play against the Mets.

IT WAS A milestone day for the Pittsburgh Pirates, who took the NL Central lead for the first time since last July and reached 15 wins in April for the first time since 1992. Manager Clint Hurdle thought his 700th career victory was a footnote at best, considering he has 808 losses. Players gave him a toast all the same. "It means you're gifted and blessed with the opportunity to do this for a while," Hurdle said after the visiting Pirates beat the Cardinals, 9-0, yesterday for a series win and the division lead.

Major League Baseball has suspended Pirates lefty Jonathan Sanchez for six games and fined him an undisclosed amount for beaning the Cardinals' Allen Craig in Friday's 9-1 loss. Sanchez has appealed the suspension, but maybe the Bucs should consider keeping him off the mound. He has allowed 16 runs on 21 hits and five walks in just 111/3 innings this season. And on Friday, he didn't get a single out, and served up back-to-back homers to Matt Carpenter and Carlos Beltran, and a single to Matt Holliday before he threw at Craig's head.

Charlie Manuel didn't explode when he was ejected from the game, nor in his postgame news conference, but the Phillies manager was clearly frustrated. His team has yet to put any facets of the game together. The Phillies are 9-14 after a 6-4 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates on Thursday at Citizens Bank Park. "We are in a period now where we are not playing good at all," Manuel said. That about sums it up. How bad have they been? Let us count the ways. The Phillies were 2 for 16 Thursday with runners in scoring position.

IT ALL FLOWS together, Charlie Manuel said a few days ago. You can try to separate the offense from the defense from the pitching, but to do so is to ignore the subtle but crucial impact that each aspect of the game can have on the others. They are inextricably linked. They all flow together. And after the Phillies treated a restless home crowd to another nine-iron-through-the-television loss yesterday afternoon, the waters at Citizens Bank Park were looking awfully murky. For purposes of record keeping, the 6-4 loss to the Pirates will stand on the record of Phillippe Aumont, and anybody who wishes to let the entirety of the blame rest there can build a strong case.

The latest game-winning rally ignited by the bottom of the Phillies' order began with patience and unfolded with haste. It involved the soon-to-be backup catcher, the most rarely used player on the roster, and the franchise's cornerstone. In the span of 10 pitches, they secured a 3-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Monday night, and scant drama was required. The Phillies won a game started by 22-year-old Jonathan Pettibone. They have a winning streak for the first time in 10 days.

A night's worth of hitting futility fell to Ben Revere, the diminutive Phillies centerfielder. He poked two foul, worked a full count, and watched strike three zip past. The umpire's call Tuesday night was audible in an abandoned ballpark. Revere stood there as everyone dispersed. The Phillies were shut out, 2-0, by Pittsburgh in one of the more disconcerting moments in a young season. Since 2006, Cole Hamels has been a mainstay of the Phillies rotation. They had never lost five straight games started by the homegrown star until now. Hamels was the victim of no support.

Emboldened by the London success of their HMS Pinafore but outraged at the rogue American productions that robbed them of royalties, Gilbert & Sullivan opened Pirates of Penzance in 1879 in New York to secure the U.S. copyright. Good thing, too, as it was another hit, skewering so many targets that it's best not to ask what pirates, virginal Victorian maidens, and mustachioed London police are doing in the same operetta. So all that the new Bristol Riverside Theatre production asks is that you sit back and enjoy the romp while it touches all sorts of satirical bases in one of the company's big-cast, big-budget productions of the season.
