Well i gave up on doing a game report live from the game on my cell phone because it was taking up too much time. Also the reason i am so late getting to this is because i ran into 3 sobriety checkpoint along the way home. I live about 40 minutes away from PNC and i left the Pittsburgh area alittle before 1am because we weren't out to eat after the game, and then we ran into 3 checkpoints along the way, each one of them look about an hour each. So i got home about 30 minutes ago. Also i was sitting in section 124. I didn't get great seats because i only decided about a week ago i wanted to go to the game.
Well here is how things looks from my angle...
This was a very fun game to see live. I don't understand how people can't like interleague.
Virgil Vazquez didn't look too good through the first two innings, but then he got into one hell of a groove. He looked like an all-star from the 3rd through the 6th. I hope he gets a couple more starts. It was very bright and hard for the players to see before the sun went down. The long ball was the story of the night for the hitters. We didn't really get alot of hits, but we took advantage of our opportunities very well. The double play with Freddy was great, and the call with Nyjer at second was complete bullsh!t, he was safe and never tagged.
Onto the 9th inning, and in comes the blob aka Matt Capps to close this 5-2 game out. Capps got through the first two pretty quick and people started to leave thinking it was already over, but i realized that wasn't a good pitcher out there it's the blob, so i stayed in my seat to watch the final out. The final out was a story in it's own right. Matt gives up a homerun, then he have some motor skill issues and he can't put his foot down on first base, so that runner reaches. Then the blob gives up a single. So two on and the power hitting Mike Jacobs comes to the plate. Luckily the homeplate umpire has issues with his contact lenses or something because he called 2 pitches that should have been balls strikes, but i wont complain about that.
All in all it was a great game and fun to watch.

From Milano, sitting in section "my sofa", the game was really incredible!!! The only question is why we have to suffer everytime at 9th inning to close a game? Is Pirates dangerous for the people that have weak heart?

Yeah they need to have a warning or something come on the screen before games.

Three checkpoints? Where were you driving to run into that many check points?

I ran into my first one on I-79, then my second on route 60 right after the Robinson exit, then the 3rd was on route 51 in Chippewa Township(you might not know where that is, it is about 7 miles from where i live). It was rough, and it made me mad because there were so many people failing the test, and i am just sitting there sober wanting to get home.

Do they have special nights at random where they just have them everywhere?
I had never run into more than one in a night before.

I think they find the checkpoints net a lot of drunk drivers after any game that Capps closes...

That's insane to run into 3 in one night. I know that they have been working on cracking down on DUIs recently. I was surprised that I didn't run into one on the Southside last night.

I am beginning to have my doubts about Capps being a top notch closer. I might be alone in that opinion but he is not a lights out guy. The Mike Williams analogy was appropriate.

You are far from the only one. I'm on that boat with ya also. I think conditioning is a big part of it.
