The Pittsburgh Pirates didn’t need their All-Star on Sunday. The closer is superfluous when it’s an eight-run game. Instead, a pair of maybe-could-have-beens again made the case that, perhaps, these Pirates are deserving of more attention than the black-and-gold teams of recent past. Kevin Correia won his 11th game, and Andrew McCutchen had three hits to cap a prolific series as Pittsburgh cruised to a 10-2 win over the Washington Nationals. Pittsburgh will wake up on the Fourth of July with a winning record for the first time since 1999.

MOVIE REVIEW - "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest" is captivating. The witty humor and dialogue used in "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl" is perfected here. Captain Jack Sparrow (played by Johnny Depp) is as witty as ever. When he finds that Davy Jones (Bill Nighy), a demon of the sea, wants his soul, Jack is prepared to sacrifice anything to escape his wrath. Will Turner (Orlando Bloom) and Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley) run into their own set of problems as Cutler Beckett (Tom Hollander)

I have been waiting for "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End" since I saw "Dead Man's Chest" last year. So my friends and I lined up with other hardcore "Pirates" fans to see the first showing of "At World's End. " And for about 168 minutes, five teenage girls were completely silent. Well, maybe not completely. In the movie, there are more than several stories going on at once. As they entwine and weave a masterpiece of fantastic cinematography, the once-confusing plot is made clear.

Witty Jack is back and tipsier than ever! "Pirates of the Carribean: At World's End" is perhaps the best of the trilogy. I usually think sequels are going to be bad, but in this case it was good. Johnny Depp (pirate captain Jack Sparrow) did his best in this one. The acting is great. The main cast members are back from the first two "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies, including Keira Knightley as young Englishwoman Elizabeth Swann, Orlando Bloom as blacksmith-turned-reluctant-pirate Will Turner, Geoffrey Rush as Barbossa, heartless captain of the pirate ship Black Pearl, and Bill Nighy as Davy Jones.

Left-hander Francisco Liriano did not allow a hit until the sixth inning against a struggling and depleted Nationals lineup, and Pedro Alvarez homered off an otherwise-dominant Stephen Strasburg, leading Pittsburgh past Washington 4-2 Wednesday night. The Nationals fell to 0-6 since the All-Star break - scoring a grand total of 13 runs in that span - and have lost 11 of their last 13 games. Already the owner of one previous no-hitter, Liriano (10-4) walked the first batter he faced, then retired 11 in a row before another walk.

The Pittsburgh Pirates weren't in the mood to celebrate after Andrew McCutchen hit two home runs in a 6-5 win over Washington. The victory, accomplished Monday night against the skidding Nationals, was meaningless in comparison to the ramifications that could come from a ninth-inning pitch thrown by All-Star closer Jason Grilli. After the pitch, the right-hander left with forearm tightness - leaving his manager and teammates somberly hoping for the best. “It's never good to see somebody in pain, let alone your All-Star closer,” starting pitcher Charlie Morton said.

Tyler Moore knew what Clint Hurdle was thinking. With one out and first base open in the eighth inning of a one-run game, Moore fully expected the Pittsburgh Pirates' manager to intentionally walk the batter in front of him. Moore was hitting .158 and had struck out six times in the three-game series. “It fires you up,” Moore said. “I would have done the same thing.” The move backfired, though, as Moore followed the walk to Adam LaRoche by hitting a three-run homer off rookie reliever Bryan Morris to seal the Washington Nationals' 6-2 victory over the Pirates on Sunday.

Andrew McCutchen's power will come and go. His speed is what makes the Pittsburgh Pirates center fielder one of the most dynamic players in baseball. The All-Star used both to give the Pirates their first winning streak in three weeks. McCutchen went 4 for 4, including his second home run in as many nights, as Pittsburgh dropped the Washington Nationals 4-2 on Wednesday. Brad Lincoln (2-0) earned the win in relief of starter Erik Bedard, who was lifted three pitches into the second inning due to back spasms.

    Why does our culture treat pirates as kid-friendly characters? They're violent criminals with notoriously bad hygiene. At least classic children's literature such as "Treasure Island" and "Peter Pan" had the decency to portray them as bad guys. But at some point they kind of became glorified. Disney's "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise (both the ride and the films) is probably the worst offender, but I'm sure they weren't the first. I guess it's not that much different from the way outlaws in the Wild West became beloved legends, and kids are definitely notorious for imitating them.

When Elena Doss moved into her house on View Street in Hagerstown with its nice yard, she decided she was going to “do it up” for Halloween. Crowds of people gathered in the yard Monday night for the Dosses' latest creation: An elaborate scene of a ship based on the popular “Pirates of the Caribbean” movies. The ship was about 16 feet long with a skeletal-looking pirate at the helm. His hands slowly steered the wheel of the ship, thanks to a contraption made from an old oscillating fan, a rubber band and some string.
