PITTSBURGH (93-7 The Fan)-Pirates broadcaster and former pitcher Bob Walk joined the Fan Morning Show on Wednesday live from St. Louis hours before the deciding Game 5 of the NLDS.
Bob says there is no advantage tonight for either team because these are two evenly matched teams. He says it might sound too simple to say, but the staring pitcher that has the best game will pitch his team into the NLCS, which opens Friday night against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Bob understands that it might have been hard for Manager Clint Hurdle to not give the ball to A.J. Burnett tonight because of what he has meant to this team and his postseason experience, but with his numbers at Busch Stadium it made the decision a pretty simple one.
