Talk about a good night for the Cutch family. Andrew McCutchen's mother, Petrina, performed the national anthem prior to Wednesday night's Pirates-Marlins matchup. Then her three-time All-Star son went out and hit his 16th homer of the year in the fourth inning. He later added a single and finished the night 1-3 with a walk.
McCutchen's Bucs won the game, 4-2, to notch their fourth straight victory. With the win, Pittsburgh improved to 69-44 on the year and their .611 winning percentage is the best in the Majors entering play on Thursday.
