The Pirates in 2016 

from baseballreference.com

3 years ago today:  Sherri and I walked down to Gary and Karen's and we went out into the street joining many others for an Applewood Valley blockparty/picnic.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​What Happened Yesterday?


Frank, Lue, Danny, and I left around 4 pm for the Pirates' game against the Astros. The weather was perfect and the game was very good. The first 6 Pirates' batters got hits, Gregory Polanco hit two homers and Nova pitched a complete game. The Pirates won 7-1.
