The Pirates just won their 2nd game in a row and 4th in 5 games with their 6-3 win over the Philadelphia Phillies tonight before a record crowd at PNC park and are now 28-29.
The shame of it is, if they wouldn't have blown a 7-0 lead the other day to the New York Mets, they would be 29-28 right now.
Of course, that's the "glass half-empty" way of looking at it. A more positive attitude would be acknowledging the resiliency of the young-Buccos who could have wilted after such a tough-loss with the very powerful Phillies coming to town.
Tomorrow, it's another shot at that elusive .500 mark. A sweep over the Phillies, with their throng of fans invading PNC Park, would be pretty sweet.
