Pirates Charities Win, Buccos Lose 8-1

Things were about as electric as one of these:

The Mets and Pirates traded runs in the 1st. Andrew McCutchen knocked in his 35th RBI of the year and extended his hitting streak to 9 games.

Jessica Pearce approves

Nice job Steve.

Bob Nutting made an appearance in the 4th inning....

.....not surprisingly the Mets used 6 hits and some poor defense to put a 5 spot up, taking a 6-1 lead.

Not exactly the same result as the Neal Huntington phone call Tuesday against the Diamondbacks.

At this point the camera can't pan to Jordan Brown enough.

Injuries or not you know Dusty was getting a call up in time for Pirates Charities auction.

The Mets tacked on a couple more runs in the 5th and 6th, 8-1 New York.


I am guessing the Stroll Inn isn't on the other end of this phone call:

Between the last start vs the Mets and this one, New York just has Charlie's number.

Morton's final line: 4.0 IP, 9 Hits, 7 R, 6 ER, 1 BB, 1 K

Morton vs. the Mets - 2 GS - 2.1 WHIP, 6.30 ERA
Morton in all other starts - 10 GS - 1.30 WHIP, 2.61 ERA

Is it a team rule that Pirates third basemen have to wear their hat like this?

Box Score

James McDonald (3-4, 4.97) will try and throw strikes tonight against that wacky knuckleballer R.A. Dickey (3-6, 4.04) at 7:05.
