Phillies vs Pirates 7/20/19
This was a good one with in-state rivals between the Phillies and the Pirates. Being a Braves fan, I was rooting really hard for the Pirates. :). Pirates struck 1st with 3 runs in the 3rd inning. Phillies managed to get a run in the 5th inning, but Pirates got out of a jam because the Phillies were in position to score lot more runs. Pirates added 2 more runs as the game moved along. There was a small 45 min rain delay, but no problem. I left in the 8th inning due to needing to get sleep, but the final score was the same. No home runs were hit in this game.
Final 5-1 Pirates over the Phillies.
Still fresh off the mental stress of my car situation and buying literally a brand new one, getting to go on a tour of PNC was a breath of fresh air that I needed. The tour was really good and let’s you really see all the different points of the stadium. My hosts took me to an amazing Argentinian restaurant and beer cellar while exploring town that afternoon. The game I went to was a celebration for the 1979 World Series Pirates team. Both teams were wearing retro jerseys, all the former players and coaches that could make it were acknowledged before the game, and even the scoreboard was re-design3d with the old school ‘79 pixel details. It was a fantastic and much needed day and game. Being at the baseball games helped my stress of the car and route melt away.
