Multiple reports say the Pittsburgh Pirates have come to terms with 1st Overall Pick Henry Davis and he’ll be introduced on Sunday. Some past Buccos were honored before the Game — as the Team celebrated the 50th Anniversary of the 1971 World Champs — who beat the Orioles in 7 Games that year.
This team are no where near a World Series Contender and showed it early against the Metropolitans. JD Davis is back for this Series — after more than 2 months on the injured list — and blasts this one to straight away center 2-0 Mets in the 4th. Davis’s next at bat in the 6th — on a full count — hits this one to right and it’s over the Clemente Wall.
Mets were up 6-0, but the Buccos battled back. Now 6-2 in the 8th with 2 on for Wilmer Difo, and he blasts one for 3 runs. In the bottom of the 9th, Jason Stallings hits one deep to left for a Grand Slam winning this one 9-7 for the Pirates.
