The teams combined for ten homers, and slugged an ungodly .943 – the record is .952. Perhaps the crazier thing is that five offensive starters somehow didn’t collect a hit on the evening. The Pirates also...

The phrase “something to prove” gets thrown around a lot in sports. Essentially, when we say that, we’re pointing at players who overachieved or underachieved, and need to do *something* to show that either they still have something left in the tank, or that their success wasn’t a fluke.
