Video: Clint Hurdle on Evan Gattis; Pedro’s Home Run

Pittsburgh Pirates manager Clint Hurdle discusses Atlanta’s Evan Gattis and his eighth inning pinch-hit home run.

Pedro Alvarez speaks to the media about his fourth inning home run, his first of the 2013 season.

  • A don’t like Hughes in the game when the game is on the line, I can do that without calling him names and writing like a jerk.

    • I mean, I think if the Pirates are in the lead at that point, he’s not the guy in the game. As is, it’s a big series, and everyone has to be on board and producing in order to win. Hughes is most definitely not the weakest link either, and you can’t afford to keep running up Melancon’s and Grilli’s innings in non-save and hold situations.

  • Tom – were there any post-game comments about Marte? He whiffed five times. Hopefully he’ll get back on track. Hopefully there was someone whispering in his ear/taking him to the side and telling him everything was going to be alright, etc. His been nothing short of spectacular at the top of the lineup. He needs to continue to rake.

  • Hurdle should explain bringing Hughes into situations were the game is on the line that douche faces Laguna beach rich boy is terrible and his angry gimmick is lame

    • You’re way out of line. Lets just see what his numbers look like at the end of the year. I’m sure you’ll know that too, while you just sit and read all about what other people do and experience. You’re just being mean…and you don’t know what you’re talking about.

    • Brilliant analysis of the game. Anyone who says you are a troll is just wrong about that.
