It was 22 years ago and I remember it like it was yesterday.....  How Ironic is it that the exact type of play that eliminated the Pirates, has allowed the Pirates to call themselves Playoff BOUND!!!!

  1. Grilli walked his first man, Dioner Navarro, and Logan Watkins ran for him. Schierholtz shattered his bat in hitting a grounder that Morneau smothered and turned into a force at second. Ryan Sweeney then singled, and the manic finish was on:

    The ball skipped off Marlon Byrd's glove ... McCutchen was right behind him to retrieve it, but his throw sailed over the first cutoff man and bounced through the second ... Third-base coach David Bell waved for Schierholtz to keep going ... Morneau retrieved the ball and fired to Martin. Game over.
