Cutchdown .500, Bucs Win 3-2 in the 12th

Pirates had been like 0-234 in games when they were 1 game under least it felt that way.

Not tonight.....Cutch had other plans.

30-30, that feels good.

The Showdown....actually lived up to what little hype it had

Duke: 7.0 IP, 9 Hits, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 1 SO

Maholm: 6.0, 1 Hit, 0 R, 0 ER, 3 BB, 4 SO

Cutch opened the scoring knocking in Tabs with a sac fly in the 3rd.

Veras let Duke off the hook and blew the win for Maholm in the 8th, when a Stephen Drew single scored Kelly Johnson.

D-backs struck first in 10th when......deja vu.....Stephen Drew singles, scoring Kelly Johnson.

Buccos come right back when Cutch doubles, Walker knocked him in on a single, 2-2.

Cutch 1B found himself in trouble in the 11th when Nady doubled and Blanco singled. 1st and 3rd no outs. Ryan Roberts struck out, then D.Cutch got Kelly Johnson to hit into a 3-6-3 inning ending DP.

Cutch 1B held Arizona off the board in the 12th too.

Then it was Cutch 1A time.........


Tabs - 4 Hits, 1 Run scored
Brandon Wood - 2 for 3

The night belonged to the McCutchen Brothers though:

Daniel McCutchen: 2 IP, 3 Hits, 1 BB, 2 SO while picking up the W
Andrew McCutchen: 3/5, 10th HR of the year, 2 Runs scored, 2 RBI while extending his hit streak to 7 games (.517 Average during that stretch).

Diamondbacks are now 0-2 against the Pirates when leading after 7 innings, 24-0 against everyone else.

Box Score

The quest for .508 tomorrow, Karstens (3-4, 3.30) vs. Collmenter (4-1, 1.25) at 7:05, since brooms aren't bringing the Bucs sweeps this year, bring your vacuum.
