The Pirates needed someone to set a tone in last night’s series opener with Milwaukee at PNC Park.
The man who did it was P Chad Kuhl.
Kuhl pitched 5-2/3 solid innings. Kuhl plunked their pitcher, Brent Suter. Kuhl ran over their catcher, Stephen Vogt.
Vogt left the game. Kuhl kept pitching.
Pretty gutsy for a pitcher. Pretty gutsy game for the Pirates.
Pittsburgh 4, Milwaukee 2. One down, three to go. Sweep the Brewers, and the Pirates are in legit contention for first place in the NL Central.
