It looks like the World Series will go the distance and seven games for the second straight year.
Brad Lincoln allowed two hits and a run in six innings, Andrew McCutchen hit a three-run homer and the Pittsburgh Pirates won for the sixth time in seven games with a 4-1 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Saturday.
Max Scherzer struck out 15 – the most by a Detroit pitcher in 40 years – and the Tigers rallied for him with three runs in the seventh inning to beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 4-3 on Sunday.
It is a statistical fact that when the Pirates sellout PNC Park, or even come close, they perform better on the field. Whether there’s a correlation between the two, or if it’s just a fluke, fans may never know; but it held up once again Saturday night as the Pirates beat the Detroit Tigers 6-2.
