That game had everything in it for the Pirates fans. Power, great defense (the play by Sanchez was unreal and Marte's arm is a cannon), and very good pitching. I'm glad our fellow board members were there for this one. Go for the sweep baby!

Also, what's with still not using T. Sanchez as DH while playing Gaby against a RHP for the second night in a row? Credit to Gaby, he pulled off an infield single and made a run-saving defensive play but you wouldn't think his 0-4 game last night would warrant starting him again with the platoon disadvantage when he has a .580 against RHP. Luckily the offense through the first two games has been fine without it, but still makes no sense to me.


That run saving defensive play should not be underestimated. Huge play in the midst of what was looking like a huge inning for Anaheim.

Not sure that Jones makes that play.
