Clint Hurdle pulls the right strings, Pirates bullpen falls apart anyway for 9-5 loss to Cubs

The Pirates bullpen doesn’t have enough Felipe Riveros. The Pirates bullpen doesn’t have enough good pitchers, period. That’s a major reason why they allowed six Cubs runs in the top of the ninth for a come-from-ahead 9-5 loss on Friday night. What isn’t — or at least shouldn’t —

Yankees 6, Athletics 7: A’s rally in the eighth as the Bombers’ losing streak continues
