Game 93: Pirates 5 Marlins 1

The deciding fourth inning tonight went like this: 

  • Rod Barajas HBP
  • Clint Barmes HBP
  • AJ Burnett sac bunt, safe at first John Buck’s error, Barajas scores
  • Alex Presley walk
  • Neil Walker sac fly, Barmes scores
  • Andrew McCutchen walk
  • Garrett Jones walk, Burnett scores
  • Casey McGehee walk, Presley scores

That’s eight batters, zero hits, four runs, zero official at-bats. I’ve pointed out the Pirates’ poor plate patience on more than one occasion this year, but tonight when faced with a pitcher that absolutely could not throw strikes, they took that for all it was worth.

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.
