The Padres rose against the Bucs last night with a final score of 5-2. Byrd was thrown out just before he hit the home plate. Jeff Locke also played a good game. Most of all, Jedd Gyorko's pitches were what got the best of The Bucs.
Clint Hurdle, Pirates manager was quoted:
"It's simple: Pirates love tomorrows," manager Clint Hurdle said, when these particular Pirates had nothing but tomorrow to embrace. "Everybody is aware of what's going on, where we are."
