For the strange circumstance that the video highlight video is blocked by MLB in the USA, I have made an audio only video. This was the funnest Pirates game I have called all year, so I at least want my great viewers to hear it!
It was a very full and complete night of Pirates baseball!! The offense was explosive, the defense was jaw-dropping, and the pitching was exactly what the Bucs needed on a Wednesday night. The Pirates WIN 10-1 over Seattle. Andrew McCutchen homered and had 4 RBI while Jung Ho Kang broke out of his slump with a 4 RBI night as well. Gerrit Cole pitched a complete game tonight; allowing only a run on 3 hits with an amazingly low pitch count. (93 pitches). For Cole, this is his first complete game in the majors.
WP: Cole (6-6) LP: Paxton (3-5)
Pittsburgh (52-48) 3rd in NL Central Division; 2.5 GB of 2nd NL WC
NOTE: Thank you for watching! MLB owns the rights. I do not. Please don’t block it! Let’s Go Bucs!
