Capps Can't Blow This One

First off, woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

Second off, we need to do something with Matt Capps

Third off, wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

The Bucs walked it off at PNC Park tonight when Andrew McCutchen went yard with Brandon Moss on second base to right center field after just a wild game. As you know I can't watch the games up here in Alaska, but I just saw the replay of the game and if you thought the Pirates were going to win this game then you were crazy.

The game started with a 1-0 lead on the first pitch of the ballgame when Jim Rollins went deep on the first pitch of the game. If you think that is kinda crazy then you will love the next sentence. Rollins went deep on the first pitch of his next at bat too. Holy cow, you don't see that too often.

The Pirates took the lead on a Steve Pearce home run which also scored Ryan Doumit (who homered earlier in the game). Then things got interesting. Matt Capps comes in, gives up a double, double, triple to blow the save and give the Phillies the lead. Andrew McCutchen misread the triple (and really should have had it) and the Phillies led by one.

The Pirates took Brad Lidge and his 7+ ERA and went to work. Luis Cruz singles then moves up on a wild pitch. Then somethign happens which I didn't want to see. Brian Bixler in the baseball game. He should not be in the game anytime the game is within 10 runs. Well Bixler, moves to third on a Brandon Moss single, then Jayson Werth bobbles the ball in right, Bixler is held at third then takes off on the bobble and just barely beats the throw home to tie the game. I don't know if that was bad baserunning or a coaching misake, but it looked really ugly the way that play went down.

Then Andrew McCutchen comes up, and actually says "What misplay in centerfield" (seriously, I think he said that) and walks it off to right centerfield and throws his fist up as he goes around the bases. Gotta love walk off homeruns.

Go Bucs.
