The Pittsburgh Pirates are three games behind the Milwaukee Brewers in the NL Central. Who is this Pirates team? Damn it sure feels good to be heading to Cleveland off a three-game sweep of the Houston Astros.
James McDonald had little command and threw 109 pitches in 5.2 innings. He walked four Astros, struckout four and got the win as the bullpen and the Pirates defense proved big in a 5-4 win.
I competed. I was just leaving it all out there. It’s fun to watch those guys play behind you. James McDonald
McDonald has a 3.15ERA in his last six starts. Tricky.
Garrett Jones had a three-run blast to stake the Bucs to an early lead.
