I had the privilege of going to two Pirates games this week. On Saturday, my boss took Lindsey and I to the company owned suite. We got down there a bit early and drank all of the free beer by the fourth inning.
The Buccos beat the Marlins 5-1, and they somehow managed to score four runs without having an official at-bat. It was pretty crazy to see the situation play out. Something I will never forget. It went something like this:
-Burnett sacrifice bunt, but is safe at first on a throwing error, Barajas scores
-Walker sacrifice fly, Barmes scores
-GFJ walks, Burnett scores
-McGehee walks, Presley scores
Burnett pitched a great game. Brad Lincoln came in during the 7th inning with one out and saved the game for A.J.
Anyways, it was a pretty awesome time.
After work on Tuesday, I went back down for a game with some guys from work. These were not free tickets and they were actually fantastic seats and only $40.
We were in the second row. Pretty great if you ask me. Sadly, the Pirates did not play so well. They got beat by the Cubs 5-1.
Paul Maholm pitched a pretty damn good game, unfortunately this was not 2011 or before. Weird seeing him pitch against the Pirates.
I also had the pleasure of meeting Brad and his wife. Hope to see them again at a game…
Also, I received my #BUCN shirt from TIGO this week. I will be able to wear it to my next game, which will hopefully be soon…
