The sixth edition of Pirates Playback will be on ROOT Sports tonight at 7:00 pm. It will be shown again on Thursday night at 10:00 pm.
Tonight’s game: May 21st, 2012 when the Bucs beat Johan Santana and the Mets, 5-4. The Pirates were down 4-0 early, but battled back to beat New York. From our recap:
“Two batters later, Clint Barmes hit a shallow fly ball to right. Walker tagged and scored, just beating the tag on a play that was reminiscent of the 1992 NLCS. Joel Hanrahan shut the door in the ninth, getting into double digits in saves. Bucs win 5-4.”
A special edition of Inside Pirates Baseball featuring Andrew McCutchen will air before Pirates Playback at 6:30.
49 days until Opening Day.
