You know what? The Red Sox lost, again, but I'm excited for baseball fans in Pittsburgh.
Wanna know why? Because Pirates' fans have suffered long enough!
Tim Wakefield took the loss for Boston on Saturday. Wakefield's win, against the Atlanta Braves, in Game 6 of the 1992 National League Championship Series is STILL the Pirates last postseason victory!
They haven't finished above .500 since that season!!
Pittsburgh goes for the sweep today. They're 2 games above .500 and
3 games out of 1st-place in the NL Central. Last night they hosted the largest crowd in PNC Park history - 39,483 fans!
I was impressed with Pittsburgh closer Joel Hanrahan! Nice fireballer!!
I wonder if he's related to Tommy Hanrahan from Slap Shot?...
