Game #53 vs. San Diego

PNC Park | 7:05 | Chacon vs. Greg Maddux | Box
Thanks to FSN Final Score, I've seen the highlights. After tying the game in the 9th, Mike Cameron homered in the 11th and was, at first, followed by Josh Bard. But, Bard's poke was ruled a ground rule double since it didn't clear the railing in dead right. Bard leaped from the dugout like a man possessed and was pitched. Pads skipper Bud Black was also tossed. Khalil Greene later added a sac fly for the final margin.
The Pirates wasted a great start by Shawn Chacon. He pitched seven shutout innings and struck out 10. Can't ask for more than that. But, Salomon Torres gave up a pair of run scoring doubles in the 9th to send the game to extra frames.
Tough way to drop the series.
