        Jason Hammel throws the first pitch to Pirates Centerfielder Andrew McCutchen.

The second pitch wasn’t as good McCutchen hit a lead off solo HR. Thta was the second night he homered against the Rockies in this series. Hammel held it together well and keeping his pitch count low for him through the game. He ended up pitching 7 innings. Lettimg up 7 hits and only 1 run. He threw 105 pitches, averaging about 15 pitches per inning. The 4th was his only high pitch inning where he did walk 2 batters but got himself out of the inning.
