and the answer to tonight’s #134PiratesTrivia is…
The Pirates, who played the Orioles in the 1971 and 1979 World Series, were looking to beat the O’s for the first time in a regular season game on June 7th, 2005. The Bucs were down 5-2 late in the game, but Daryle Ward hit a 3-run bomb in the bottom of the eighth to tie the game. Jack Wilson came to the plate three batters later and gave the Pirates the lead with a solo shot. Jose Mesa came in for the save, and Pittsburgh won 6-5 in front of 21,422 at PNC Park. Brian Meadows was credited with the win as he pitched a scoreless top of the eighth.
The Pirates starting lineup from that night:
1. Matt Lawton, RF
2. Ryan Doumit, C
3. Rob Mackowiak, 3B
4. Jason Bay, LF
5. Daryle Ward, 1B
6. Jose Castillo, 2B
7. Tike Redman, CF
8. Jack Wilson, SS
9. Dave Williams, P
