Pirates and Reds game 2

I’ll do a one-shot recap round up when game 2 is over tonight, but from what I could tell Dan McCutchen seemed to be pretty good in his big league debut, especially given that he gave up a homer to the first batter he faced, fellow rookie Drew Stubbs. Losing on a walk-off wild pitch always sucks, though.

Game 2 is at the regular 7:10 PM start time with Paul Maholm facing a just-off-the-DL Johnny Cueto. Why bring back a young pitcher with a pile of innings and a hip problem so quickly this late in the year? Ask Dusty Baker!

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.
