Buccos streak now 10 :>(

"We like playing here," Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said. "We just didn't do well this week. "I never thought we'd throw up a doughnut at home."

Just when you think that all the worsts were in the Pirates’ rear-view mirror, Pittsburgh just completed an 0-7 homestand, the worst in 125 years of franchise history. Beyond the fact that their losing streak has now reached 10 games, the homestand losses were against the ghastly Padres and Chicago Cubs, two teams that were a combined 39 games under .500 when the week began.

The Pirates, leading the division on July 26, were outscored 59-25 by the Cubs and Padres.

No team in the majors has had a homestand that long without a win since Kansas City in May 2006.

San Diego came into the series last in the National League in average, runs, home runs and extra-base hits. The Padres scored 35 runs in three games, tied for the second-most in any three-game stretch in franchise history, according to our friends at the Elias Sports Bureau.
