2012 Pirates vs. Braves(Payback for 1992)

Looking at the schedule this season, the Bucs end the regular season with a three game home series versus the Braves. What if the final October 3rd game, carries special meaning? Could the Bucs avenge 1992?

Let's say in this scenario, a win in this final regular season game would either end the streak, or better yet, deliver a playoff berth. For the Braves, they also need a win for the playoffs. And how about this, the Braves carry a 2-1 lead in the bottom of the ninth inning with their best closer on the mound. With two out, a Pirate hits a grounder to Chipper Jones, who makes an error. Cutch comes to the plate. With two strikes on him, Andrew delivers a game winning home run, and the Bucs win, 3-2.

I can't begin to imagine the decibel level and excitement at PNC Park if such a scenario played out for real. Question to all, if the October 3rd game really did take on this importance, how would you write the script?
