Pirates killers like Roberts couldn't catch up to Hanranator last night...

Photos From Pittsburgh Pirates Dramatic Walkoff 3-2 Win Over Diamondbacks

Andrew McCutchen hit his second walkoff homerun of his career.

The franchise and I headed over to the game tonight on a whim.  We’re really glad we did.   He overloaded on cotton candy while I got to watch a never-say-die Pirates’ team reach a milestone in their 2011 season.

When Andrew McCutchen’s homerun landed in the left field seats, everyone exploded.

By the way, PNC Park is a cool place to watch a winner.

Paul Maholm was tremendous.

Maholm was on cruise control including this big strikeout of Xavier Nady

Hell, everyone that pitched for the Pirates did a nice job… well, everyone except Jose Veras.  The PNC faithful screamed that he sucked as he walked off the field with two Snakes on the bags.

Jose...Jose...Jose...next time big fella

Tony Watson was fresh from an Indy callup,  and his folks drove all night from Iowa to see him. He took care of the mess Veras left behind with some unbelievable pitching, striking out two.

Watson made Hurdle look like a genius or as Hurdle said a man playing with ‘live ammo’

This Watson strikeout of Young was monstrous for the left hander. Watson levitated back to the Pirates dugout after getting Miranda to whiff next.

Joel Hanrahan was ultra efficient and made Roberts look silly.

 

Daniel McCutchen took care of the rest.

Cocktailsfor2’s man-crush Jose Tabata had four hits.

We saw some sharp fielding from both the Pirates and the Diamondbacks.

Pittsburgh Pirates’ fans understand that this has been a long time coming.  In fact, the Pirates are 30-30 for the first time since June 11, 2005.  A season that ended with 95 losses by the way, so let’s not get too caught up in the .500 chase.

After ripping a ball down the left field line, Snyder re-aggravated his back injury and left the game.
