McCutchen achieves feat that hasn’t been done since 96′
Andrew McCutchen is the first player in Pirates organization to hit at least 15 home runs and have at least 30 stolen bases in a season since 1996 by Al Martin. (McCutchen has 16 HR and 31 SB in 147 games this season).
This feat was achieved by Barry Bonds six times (1986-87, 89-92), Andy Van Slyke twice during 1987-88 and Phil Garner in 1977.
“Hopefully I can just continue to keep making a word for myself,” McCutchen said. “Set different goals, get different records and who knows what can happen. It’s good, especially since the season isn’t over yet. We’ll see what I’ll be able to accomplish in a full year and where it goes from there.”
