Pirates 7 – Cardinals 3. Grant Park – AAHA Mosquito
A huge walk up crowd amassed leading to Grant Park’s first sellout of the 2015 season featuring the courageous Cardinals and the pesky Pirates.
While the initial innings saw the spectators somewhat restless, they eventually got their money’s worth as the two teams duked it out like a vintage Ali bout.
Although the teams failed to live up to the hitting prowess of the likes of Bautista, many of them made key hits on Wednesday night. Evan Booker (great baseball name) hammered home the eventual winning run with a smash to right field earning him a special contract payment from Pita Pit.
Landon Wakelyn and Nick Mangum also had very strong outings from the bullpen pitching a combined 4 strong innings.
Lastly, in an effort even Pete Rose would appreciate, Matthew Sevensma continued to show an amazing work ethic both defensively and at the plate.
