May 10th In Bucco History

Double your pleasure, bullpen heroics and the middle of the order mashes...

  • 1953 - IF Eddie and Johnny O'Brien become the first twins to play for the same team in the same game when Johnny entered the nitecap of DH on defense and Eddie later pinch ran. The karma didn’t carry over as the Bucs were swept by the NY Giants 4-0 and 3-2 in the twinbill at the Polo Grounds.
  • 1984 - Pittsburgh defeated the Giants 4-2 at TRS behind some clutch bullpen work. Don Robinson inherited a bases loaded, no outs jam in the eighth from Cecilio Guante and got a pop up and DP. In the ninth, Robinson left the sacks juiced with two out for Teke, who retired Joel Youngblood on a fly to ice the win. Dale Berra homered and drove in three runs to spark the offense.
  • 2000 - Wil Cordero, Kevin Young and Pat Meares teamed up to lead the Bucs to a 13-9 victory over the Mets at TRS. Cordero went 5-for-5 with four RBI and three runs; Young went 4-for-5 with two runs driven in and four runs scored and Meares went 3-for-4 with a pair each of RBI and runs. Cordero had a HR and double, Young a long ball and Meares banged a three-bagger.
