Raise the Jolly Roger

If you didn’t get to see the Pirates vs Cardinals series this weekend you definitely missed out. It was a four game series with the Pirates winning 3 of the 4 games.

Both teams are battling it out in the NL Central. The Cardinals are still the league leaders with the Pirates now just 2.5 games back. Pirates pitchers were helping their cause all weekend with A.J. Burnett hitting his first home run in 10 years and Francisco Liriano hitting a double last night.

Two of the four game series went into extra innings. Saturday night was 14 innings with the Cutch being clutch in a walk off 2 run home run. Last night went 10 innings with the Pirates once again winning with a walk off single by Gregory Polanco.

Time to raise the Jolly Roger!
