Pirates Morning Report:

FINAL SCORE: PIRATES 4 GIANTS 3

WHY THE PIRATES WON: TWO WORDS, JACK SUWINSKI. A 3 HOME RUN GAME WITH THE LAST ONE BEING THE GAME WINNER IN THE BOTTOM OF THE 9TH. THERE WERE OTHER KEY CONTRIBUTORS AND MIRACULOUS HAPPENINGS. MICHAEL PEREZ GOT A HIT. HOY PARK HIT THE OTHER HOME RUN THAT ACCOUNTED FOR THE 1ST PIRATE RUN. I MAY AGAIN TRY TO TURN WATER INTO WINE. MITCH KELLER PITCHED ANOTHER GOOD GAME. I THINK THAT THERE IS LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL FOR THAT YOUNG MAN. IF HE CAN FIND HIMSELF IT WILL BE A TREMENDOUS LIFT FOR THIS PITCHING STAFF. THE PIRATES HAVEN’T WON MANY GAMES LATELY BUT WHEN THEY HAVE IT’S BEEN QUITE THRILLING.

KEY MOMENT OF THE GAME: INTHE FIRST INNING, THE FIRST 4 BATTERS FOR THE GIANTS GOT ON BASE AND THE SCORE WAS 2-0. KELLER GOT OUT OF THE INNING WITH NO FURTHER DAMAGE. FROM THAT POINT ON THE GIANTS NEVER SNIFFED THE PLATE. THE GIANTS WILL NEVER BE ACCUSED OF AGGRESSIVE BASE RUNNING AND IN THIS GAME, IT FINALLY CAUGHT UP WITH THEM. A NICE FATHER’S DAY WIN FOR THE PIRATES.

NEXT GAME: TONIGHT, CUBS IN PITTSBURGH. IT LOOKS LIKE ONEIL CRUZ IS GOING TO BE CALLED UP BUT REMEMBER THAT DOESN’T MEAN THEY WILL PLAY HIM MUCH. UNDER THE NEW AGREEMENT IF A ROOKIE IS CONSIDERED TOP 3 THEN HE GETS CREDIT FOR THE YEAR SERVED. IF THAT HAPPENS WITH CRUZ THEN THE PIRATES WOULD HAVE KEPT HIM DOWN THERE FOR NOTHING. I AM SURE HE WILL GET PLENTY OF REST AS ONE OF THE KEYS TO HIS “DEVELOPMENT”. WHAT A BUNCH OF PIRATE B.S. OH WELL, BETTER LATE THAN NEVER. I WONDER IF THEY WILL BAT HIM 9TH. I DON’T CARE I’M STILL EXCITED. COULD THIS BE THE END OF THE YU CHANG ERA IN PITTSBURGH. IF IT IS, I WILL BE LOOKING FORWARD TO THE VIDEO TRIBUTE.
