Pittsburgh Pirates at San Francisco Giants

I was born and raised in Pittsburgh, and grew up with both the "We are Family" World Series winners and the disappointing but fun-to-watch Pirate teams of the late 80s/early 90s. It's been a painfully long drought for Pirates fans, but this year Clint Hurdle's men have been playing good baseball and finished the first half with a share of first place. They have slipped a bit so far in the second half, but taking two of three in San Francisco (the two games I shot by the way) stopped their losing streak, and hopefully will get them back on track.
