That was an awesome game to watch last night. Edinson Volquez and Josh Harrison? Phew. Thank you guys for showing up.
Every single game is obscenely important right now. Every game. Division games, non-division games, interleague game, all are huge. The margin of error for the Pirates is razor thin. The non-activity at the deadline looms large right now, especially...
A strong argument could be made that the two most pleasant surprises for the Pirates this season have been Josh Harrison and Edinson Volquez.
Harrison began the season as a bench player who was expected to be not much more than an ultra-utility guy and Volquez was signed in the offseason off the scrap heap after several underwhelming seasons with the Reds, Padres and Dodgers.
With all due respect to Edinson Volquez, who threw another tremendous game and continues to be a great story….this was the Josh Harrison show. There have been several Josh Harrison shows this year, but this one might have topped them all.
Here’s all J-Hay did:
Diving stop and throw for an out early in the game
Snag a liner to escape Volquez’s first jam of the night
There’s turning the conventional 5-4-3 double play and then there’s what Pittsburgh Pirates third baseman Josh Harrison seems to do on a daily basis.
With runners on first and second with no outs in the top of the seventh inning, Harrison made a great diving stop on a hit down the line by Cincinnati Reds third baseman Kris Negron. Quickly tapping third base with his throwing...

The ride to the park set a tone.
One of the Pirates' team buses broke down five times on the way to Chase Field from the team hotel on Thursday afternoon, left fielder Josh Harrison said.

While this sequence of base running was truly amazing; it wasn’t to be in vain. Harrison went 4-6 on the night against the Colorado Rockies, helping to propel them to a 7-5 victory. The breathtaking rundown didn’t happen...
Pittsburgh Pirates utility man Josh Harrison can escape a rundown like no other player can.
The first-time National League All-Star narrowly avoided getting tagged in a pickle during a June 27 game against the New York Mets. Harrison topped that performance on Sunday against the Colorado Rockies with some elusive moves that any NFL team would like to have in its backfield.
Here is a GIF of the botched rundown/blown call by the umpires #Mets http://t.co/gQ9NFbDI3t — #ImWithTowels (@MetsKevin11) June 28, 2014 Pirates outfielder Josh Harrison is one hell of a baserunner. On Friday’s game between the Pittsburgh Pirates and New York Mets, Harrison displayed one of the most amazing base running plays you’ll ever see. In the 10th inning of a tie game...
