Game 125: Pirates 8 Padres 1

Let's see: a strong, seven-inning AJ Burnett start, a Pedro Alvarez triple (!), a two-run Andrew McCutchen triple, and a three-run Josh Harrison triple (with 'Cutch and Harrison's triples both coming in a five-run seventh inning), combined with a Cardinal loss and a Red loss. 

Combine all this with Francisco Liriano's great start on Monday, and this road trip is off to about as good a start as any of us would've dared hope for on Sunday.

It's bed time.

In 2005, I started a WHYGAVS instead of working on organic chemistry homework. Many years later, I've written about baseball and the Pirates for a number of sites all across the internet, but WHYGAVS is still my home. I still haven't finished that O-Chem homework, though.
