Three straight games with a homer? Trent won't Kuhl off.
Kuhl on the hill.
Pro: Chad Kuhl is touching 98 mph on his fastball in the first inning.
Con: He is so wild right now he may literally murder a man.
That's one hell of a pitching line for Chad Kuhl: 3 2/3 IP, 4 H, 4 R, 3 ER, 7 BB, 1 SO, 1 WP, 1 HB, 1 HR ... threw 92 pitches, 45 for strikes.
The Padres are legit World Series contenders. The Pirates are rebuilding. The Padres had a former Cy Young award winner on the mound. Chad Kuhl has walked 7 in 3.2 The Pirates have a 6-3 lead.
Cahill was at 5 IP, 82 pitches, had allowed 1 run, struck out eight and was rolling last night when he was yanked.
Kuhl has walked 6. He's at 86 pitches, has allowed 3 runs, and just now someone's up in the Pirates bullpen.
Their spring buildups were not terribly dissimilar.
Growing up, I lived in a v small town with a faming community on the outskirts. I helped friends farm a bunch. Every year during early summer, my friend's old brothers would have their hair shaved down to buzz cuts in advance of farm work. This was called "strawberry hair"...
You'd rub fresh strawberry hair for luck. A few times since moving away, I've wondered abt strawberry hair. Was it called that because of strawberry season? Or because of the fuzz on strawberries? Does anyone else do this and can tell me?
Please tell me your similar stuff.
JOHN THINKS IT'S BECAUSE THE SKIN GETS SUNBURNT!! I don't really get sunburnt, so this would NEVER have occurred to me! GOOD DETECTIVE WORK
Pirates Chad Kuhl is out of the game after issuing a career-high seven walks (plus one HBP and a wild pitch) 3.2 innings.
Cooperstown will not be asking for any momentos from either of tonight's starting pitchers.
7 walks and 92 pitches. I called out Williams last year, and I’ll be no different for Kuhl. The opening day starter is officially the last of the five I want to see start #LetsGoBucs
Trent Grisham off RHP Chad Kuhl - 103.5 mph, 25 degrees (408 ft Home Run)
87.3 mph Slider
#Padres @ #Pirates (T1)
Chad Kuhl allowed his career-high seventh walk with two outs, then Eric Hosmer hit an RBI single to make it a 6-4 game with runners at the corners in the fourth.
Clay Holmes enters.
Kuhl and Snell are at Northside Tavern
Put Kuhl in the pen and try to salvage trade value that way. It isn’t gonna happen as a starter as much as I’d like it to.
Terrible outing from Chad Kuhl. In 10.2 IP this season (3 starts), he’s given up 7 hits & 15 BB. #Pirates
Kuhl’s Whip might be over 2 lol #LetsGoBucs
this game isn’t very kuhl. moving along at a snell’s pace smh
Dogs love Chad Kuhl because he walks so much
Surprised Kuhl gave the ball to Shelton without missing

Kuhl looks like a world-beater, then right away a self-defeater. Frustrating.
RBI base hit Hosmer chases. Kuhl. 92 pitches, 47 of them balls. Career high seven walks.
Holmes in to pitch with runners on the corners and two outs
Classy move by #pirates fans tonight, clapping for Chad Kuhl who goes 3.2 and walks 7. If he’s paid by the hour, he earned his keep
