I had the chance to see the first-place Pittsburgh Pirates play the Chicago Cubs this week.
Above is the line on the game, which the Pirates won to put them 21(!) games over .500. Francisco Liriano pitched a complete game for the Buccos, and we saw three triples from Pirate batters. It was a beautiful day in Chicago.

in the first-place position on the NL Central pole.
