Game 2 & 3 Pirates vs Dodgers (4/7-8)
What a game #2 was!
Garrett Jones hit a monster 3 Run HR in the 1st inning against Clayton Kershaw. Yes, if your counting that is 3 HR in 2 Games for GFJ! Unbelieveable!
The Pirates/Dodgers went into extras tied at 3-3. Now, If we would have had the 2009 Pen we would have deffinitly lost the game. The bullpen has really improved with the new additions and held off the Dodgers. Ronny Cedeno hit his first career walk off win in the bottom of the 11th for the W.

I couldn’t believe that going into Game #3 of the season we had a chance for the Sweep. And over the Dodgers! A few fans sitting around me even brought brooms which I thought was hilarious!
Unfortunatly they weren’t used. I don’t know if it was lack of rest due to the late game the night before or what. JR also changed the lineup a bit. Church replaced Milledge in LF, Garrett Jones moved from RF to 1B, Delwyn Young played RF and Bobby Crosby played SS in place of Ronny Cedeno.
Crosby had 2 Errors, Jones had 1
The team had 11 LOB and were only 1 for 9 with RISP.
Hayden Penn made his debut with the Pirates and gave up 6 H and 4 R in just 1 inning.
To make matters worse, it was cold, windy and poured rain.
I’m a real fan and stayed the whole game, soaked and freezing. People flew out of the stadium as if they would melt in the rain. I think its rude to leave in the middle of the game, might as well kick them when they are down.
The Dodgers won 11-2.
I almost forgot! Guess who was at PNC park for the 1st pitch??!
I am huge fans of Mike & Mike!
