Bucs Don't Stop Here, Win 5th in Row


Dan O'Neill Of the Post-Dispatch, St Louis Post-Dispatch (MO)


If one didn't know better, one might have thought it was the seventh game of the World Series as the opposing managers employed 10 pitchers, including five in the last inning.

But in a game somewhat less significant, the Pittsburgh Pirates prevailed with a 2-1 victory over the Cardinals on Friday at Busch Stadium.

A crowd of 24,157 - 28,625 tickets were sold - watched the Pirates (69-78) run their winning streak to five, a season high.

After many up and downs - literally - in 1993, Urbani is hoping to postion himself for a regular spot in the rotation next season.

The Pirates got a cheap run in the second inning for a 1-0 lead. Jeff King doubled to right and advanced to third on a deep fly. Urbani got Orlando Merced to bounce out as King held. But with Don Slaught at the plate, a pitch in the dirt eluded catcher Erik Pappas and King trotted home. …
