Post Game Update
The Pirates won their 3rd consecutive game against the Washington Nationals. The Bucs took the lead on a bases loaded wild pitch in the ninth.

Matt Capps came in and collected the save, though he nearly gave up a walk-off home run to Josh Willingham.

In other news, the Pirates have apparently been so successful in the city of Washington that they were invited to the White House today. Manager John Russell declined his visit saying that he’ll wait for a World Series ring.
