Adam Frazier’s pinch-hit home run was the difference Sunday afternoon as the Pirates beat the Phillies 5-4 to take the series.

All five runs were driven in by bench players.

“It can definitely be argued that it’s the best bench I’ve had as a manager,” Clint Hurdle said. “Definitely the best bench here.”

Saturday night was poised to be a momentous occasion for Tyler Glasnow. The Pittsburgh Pirates’ top prospect was called up from Triple-A Indianapolis and made his first of presumably many starts at PNC Park.

In a year with plenty of Pirates debuts, Glasnow’s may have been the most highly anticipated.

Some of Neal Huntington's best moves were the ones he didn't make.

Gerrit Cole allowed one run in six innings but Phillies starter Zach Eflin shut out the Pirates on three hits, 4-0, Friday at PNC Park.

Zach Eflin's outing was efficient. Heck, even effortless.

Let’s take a trip back to the not-so-distant past. On June 15, 2015, the Pittsburgh Pirates walloped then-rookie starter Carlos Rodon and beat the Chicago White Sox 11-0 at PNC Park.

While the offensive outburst rightfully garnered much of the attention, Francisco Liriano quietly threw what might have been the best game of his career.

Francisco Liriano struck out a season high 13 batters and Matt Joyce drove home four runs in a 5-3 win over the Brewers to take the series.

“It looked like it was tough to be a Brewers hitter tonight,” Joyce said on Liriano’s “wiffleball.”

On Monday night, Tyler Glasnow and Josh Bell suited up as teammates for the first time in a couple of weeks. Plenty of Pirates fans wish that it was as members of the parent club instead of its AAA affiliate in Indianapolis.

The two are unanimous picks as top three prospects in the Pirates’ farm system and made their major league debuts this month.

The Milwaukee Brewers walked nine times, stole five bases, and beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 9-5 on Wednesday night in front of a sellout crowd at PNC Park.

Following two straight walk-off losses, the Brewers tagged Locke for five runs in three-plus innings and consistently put themselves in position to do damage.

Bob Prince was best known as the voice of the PIttsburgh Pirates for 28 years, but it was not the only job he had over his Hall of Fame career. “The Gunner” also called Steelers and Penguins games at different times during his career and was part of the NBC broadcast team for the 1965 All-Star Game.

Pittsburgh Penguins’ head coach Mike Sullivan has obviously spoken several very kind words about his championship hockey team. Sullivan has complimented his team’s speed, chemistry, and teamwork. But perhaps more than anything else, Sullivan complimented their toughness.

Whenever a hockey team changes coaches mid-season, it’s fair to look at the season in two parts. The beginning of the 2015-16 Pittsburgh Penguins campaign was the end of the Mike Johnston era and the remainder marked the beginning of Mike Sullivan’s tenure as head coach.
