With October winding down and postseason baseball heating up, we figured that it would be fun to craft a list of the Pittsburgh Pirates’ top 10 postseason moments of all-time.
This is an opportunity to bring back some nostalgia and spread some positivity as we tune into the World Series.
Coming in at No. 8 on our list...
The last time the Pirates won a playoff game came eight years ago, thanks to the bat of Pedro Alvarez.
With two on and one out in the bottom of the eighth inning of a 3-3 tie, Alvarez’s base hit scored Josh Harrison to put the Buccos on top.
Closer Jason Grilli would hold the lead in the top of the ninth to give the Pirates a win and a 2-1 lead in the series.
