Giants at Pirates, 5 May 2014

The game in verse:

The Giants head for Pittsburgh to take on the Bucs
And Andrew McCutchen chases some ducks
Petit in for Cain, we expect something great
But he gives up 9 hits and runs numbering 8
Dunning’s wild pitches, two in an inning
The Giants are losing and the Pirates are winning
Bring on the rally, bat all the way round
The crack of the bats is a comforting sound
Now here comes Buster, in the 9th ties the game
Get ready for at least one additional frame
Time for free baseball at PNC Park
Best hurry up as it’s getting quite dark
What’s this? A sac bunt, laid down by Machi
His five wins the most in the whole MLB
Another save for Romo – that’s 10 on the year
Six wins in a row, there’s plenty to cheer
But the home run streak ends on this long drawn-out night
20 hits on the board and not a long ball in sight

Final score (13): Giants 11 Pirates 10

According to Baseball Reference, this is only the third time since the move to San Francisco (1959, 1961, 2014) that the Giants have had 20 or more hits in a game without adding a home run. All three games were against the Pirates.
