With a lineup that featured Felix Pie, Travis Snider, John Buck, and others that most likely won't be on the playoff roster the Pirates swept the Reds who played their starting until for about for innings today.
Nothing really to take from this game. Brandon Cumpton had a nice start and might be a guy the team looks at to carry on the playoff roster (which was why I was a little surprised he started today) and Garrett Jones hit a home run in what might have been his final Pirates at bat ever.
Whatever the take from this the Pirates finished the year with 94 wins which was probably around 15-20 more than anyone had them for. They will fly back to Pittsburgh to host Cincinnati on Tuesday in the Wild Card game and if they win there travel to either St. Louis or Los Angeles (depending on outcomes today).
Get excited. The fun/excitement/heart attack feeling is just beginning. Tomorrow is going to be a tough day to get through, as will waiting all day for the game on Teusday but...
