105 pitches. Any chance McDonald pitches the 9th?

I'd like him to finish for three reasons...
1. A complete game looks good for an All-Star resume
2. Any chance to save the bullpen...do it
3. He is flat dealing!

Well he is leading off the ninth, so I am guessing he stays in.

Raise it, boys.

Great effort. Saw the Barajas, Jones and Pedro HR's (all just smoked) and J-Mac with the solid work. Fun to watch.

I'm just waiting for the day when Pedro puts one in the river on the fly. The ball just explodes off his bat.

Liked the fact that in the prior AB, he took a vicious cut when given the green light 3-0, and then hit a line drive to left center.

Next AB, ball down-and-in, crushed out to RF.

Good at-bats. Both of them.

Clear the Deck X3.

Ball game.

Raise it.

Oh yeah... small nod to James McDonald :)

"Cannonball comin'!" I think Greg is really trying to make that his catch phrase. As long as the Pirates keep hitting taters he could say "Beetlejuice" for all I care.

Raise it.

At least he's not trying to do player-specific homerun calls anymore. It sounds ridiculous when John Sterling does it, but its even worse when its a "Jack Jack" or some such nonsense.

Of all the Pirates homerun calls this season, my favorite was Neverett's when Barajas hit the walk-off homer in May against the Nats. A very simple but enthusiastic "GOOOONNNE!" was all that was necessary, and it was awesome.

The crowd reaction to the moment that ball left Pedro's bat put such a smile on my face. What a SHOT that was.
