The eighth of ten Pirates Playback games will be on ROOT Sports tonight at 7:00 pm.
The featured game, which was from July 3rd, was arguably the best of the season. A.J. Burnett didn’t have his best stuff, but the Bucs battled back to take the lead. Joel Hanrahan allowed Houston to tie the game in the top of the ninth, but Drew Sutton took care of business in the bottom half. From our recap:
“With one out, Sutton sent everyone home with a walk-off home run off of Wesley Wright to dead center. Absolutely incredible. Easily one of the best games in the history of PNC Park. Not even sure how to explain it.”
The journeyman utility player pushed the Pirates to eight games over .500. We named Sutton’s walk-off as the most memorable Pirates moment of 2012.
35 days until Opening Day.
