It was the longest game of the season, and the longest game for the Buccos since 1979. If you think a regular game of baseball is boring, this one would have made you want to plank on on a bed of poison ivy for a thrill – or something like that.
The Pirates lost, but they shouldn’t have. At least not if that call was the determining factor of the game. Big shout-out to the ump (Jerry Meals) who just made the worst call in the history of baseball.
