With the season behind them, it’s time to look back on the Pirates’ best 10 wins of 2016.

On Thursday night, the Pittsburgh Pirates completed their final home game of the season. In the past few years, there was palpable buzz around the ballpark as the seasons shifted from summer to fall. The Pirates were in it, PNC Park was full, and the games were important.

In 2016, September baseball has been much different. Pittsburgh was officially eliminated on Tuesday night, but, practically, illusions of contention faded several weeks prior.

The Pirates’ meager playoff chances neared closer to the tipping point Monday night after a 12-2 shellacking to the Cubs. It was Chicago’s 100th win of the season.

Pirates’ starter Chad Kuhl (5-4) loaded the bases three times in his 3+ innings. He wriggled off with just a sacrifice fly in the first.

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.
