Kudos to the Pittsburgh Kid for several things. Baker brings in the lefty to turn Walker around and he makes them pay. His defense was flawless. But can you imagine what is going on in this guy's head as he stood on 2nd base? His hometown. His favorite team. Talk about a dream come true.

This night was special to a lot of people, but I can't imagine anyone had the feelings Walker had.

Very happy for him and very proud he is a Pirate.

And as he stood on 2nd, he could not hear a player 3' away, yelling at the top of his lungs.

But the thing I liked so much about the game, apart from the final score, was how the Pirates players took care of business. Every at-bat battled, every ball fielded cleanly, every bunt put down.

They looked like the team with a lot of experience, while the Reds looked overwhelmed.

I was proud to see Walker assist in that last out. He played a great game. The entire team. The emotion. It was fantastic.
