Charles Schulz must have been a Pirates Fan...

...although last night's game makes this strip a little less on-point for our long sufferin' Buccos. Accordingt to the website, this strip originally ran July 29, 1962. The Pirates, managed by Danny Murtaugh, lost to the Phillies, led by Gene Mauch. This has to be the father of the Gene Mauch who managed the Expos and others in the 70s and 80s. The pitching match-up was McBean v. McLish - damn Irishmen.... The Pirates lone run in an 8-1 loss came when Roberto Clemente homered with 2 out in the 4th inning. For this, he got replaced by "H.Goss," which seems a little like replacing McClutch with Eric Hinske.  The Pirates pitcher, McBean, lasted only 3.1 innings and gave up 10 hits. I wonder if Dave Littlefield tried to recall him for the 2007 pitching staff. The point of all this? None, just had to get to 75 words.
