magnificent! Pirates 7-5 over the Giants

Filed under: — adrian @ 8:09 pm

I went to the Pirates at Giants game this afternoon with dug.

We got tickets in the Arcade section (147 to be specific) which is an odd section in front of the pathway out in right field that’s only a few rows (4-7) rows deep. We were in row four which put us pretty close to the field. It was Moises Alou Bobblehead Night and I was looking forward to having a bobblehead to put in my space at work.

The Pirates squeezed out a couple of runs and were ahead 2-1 until the Giants took the lead in the 6th. In the top of the 8th when they loaded the bases. A hit to the 2nd baseman followed by a where-do-I-throw-this bit of confusion lead to the bases still being loaded and another run in. Then Bautista, who had doubled earlier in the game, came up and hit a grandslam on a 1-1 pitch. Final score: 7-5.

Here’s a decent recap.

    I was looking for you on tv this weekend cause I thought you’d be at one of the games – but I didn’t see you. They are looking pretty good for a last place team though.

    I was apparently on TV last time I went to a Pirates-Giants game, but that time I was in the first row along the first baseline and this time I was in the outfield.

    Did you get your old-school Pirates hat yet? I want to see a picture of you wearing it. I may be investing in this hat soon:
    FYI: If you vote for players for the All-Star Game, you’ll get an email from MLB good for 15% off in the MLB store. I’m not sure if you have to vote 25 times or not to get this. I did. Make sure you vote for Jason Bay and write in Freddy Sanchez at 3rd.
