Here’s TribLIVE’s Pirates pageRob Biertempfel, Travis Sawchik and Karen Price are on the scene.

Also, thought I’d share this fun talk I had with Justin Wilson last night about the pitch of the game …

What’s cooler still, as Clint Barmes later told me, the pitch perfectly matched his position. He drew it against a wall for me, essentially a straight line from Joey Votto’s bat to the left edge of the mound. Barmes was to stand at the other end of that line … which is right where the ball bounced for the simple 6-3 DP.
