DiamondSmack, Pirates Rally, Win 8-5

Kelly Johnson starts the scoring with a solo HR off K-Core in the 1st....secretly Rich was happy, 1-0 Diamondbacks.

Pirates grab 2 off Daniel Hudson in the 2nd. The first off a Snyder sac fly, the second off a Ronny Fresh single, 2-1 Pirates.

Crew Cut does it Sac Fly style again in the 4th, 3-1 Bucs.

Then Correia came unhinged. A lead off HR to Juan Miranda to start the 5th, 3-2 Bucs. Single to the pitcher, Hudson.....Double to Roberts.....single to Johnson, scoring 2, 4-3 Snakes.....single to Upton.

All in all, 5 hits in the inning. Correia leaves the game on the hook for the L, as the Pirates fail to knock in a lead off double by Cedeno during the bottom half of the 5th.

He was pitching at home, we didn't really think he would win did we?

Actual picture of Rich during the 5th inning:

Fast Forward to the 8th, Chris Young lead off HR, 5-3 Arizona.

Arizona was 24-0 when leading after 7 innings this year.

They didn't know Neil Huntington would be on the phone with ROOT Sports.

Double by GFJ.
Tabs double, Jones scores, 5-4 Zona.
J.Harrison, not the one that plays football, single...Tabs scores....Tie ball game baby, 5-5.
XP safe, on a sacrifice attempt.

Cutch Walks....bases juiced.

In steps Lyle Overbay, oops I mean Lyle Over-KellyJohnson.......

Bases clearing double in the gap to right-center, atta boy.......8-5 Bucs.

D-backs knew who was coming and they don't want none of this......

Kelly Johnson, ganked. Justin "Don't Call me B.J." Upton, ganked. Stephen "Don't Call me J.D." Drew, pop out.

Make that 24-1 for the Diamondbacks when leading after 7.

Brad loves his timeline.....

@dbacks did not

All the Pirates have to do to get back to .500 tomorrow is get by our old buddy Wacky Zachy Duke (1-1, 3.00).

Oh the Irony....

Paul Maholm (2-7, 3.66) goes for the Pirates at 7:05.
