Game 82: Pirates 2 Padres 1

The most important thing that happened in this game was that Pedro Alvarez came up twice late in the game with Andrew McCutchen in scoring position, worked six pitch at-bats both times, and on two separate full counts hit the ball sharply and in a fashion that resulted in McCutchen scoring.

Padres have never lost a series at Pirates' PNC Park

The Padres must really, really love to play at PNC Park in Pittsburgh. According to Friar Wire, the team has won 14 consecutive series against the Pirates at PNC since 2001.

This is a big week for the Pirates, because the universe has no regard for Josh Harrison’s torn thumb ligaments or Starling Marte’s strained oblique. The second half of the week is obviously the more exciting part, with the Pirates closing out the pre-All Star Break portion of their season with four games at PNC Park against the Cardinals. The first part of the week, three games...

The slider maybe isn’t as enticing for guys to chase, or maybe they’re just more aware of it, and they’re just trying to lay off it.” Sarris also talked to Justin Upton and Will...
