The Penguins were in the house Tuesday as McCutchen continues to turn back the clock

Pirates 5 – Rockies 2

The Pittsburgh Penguins were in the house Tuesday night with Sidney Crosby throwing the first pitch and Andrew McCutchen continues to turn back the clock.

McCutchen homered twice and drove in 3-runs to lead the Pirates (30-35) to a 5-2 win over the NL West leading Rockies. Pittsburgh has won four straight.

It’s been 2013 esque McCutchen of late who has bumped his average up to .255 on the season and is hitting .397 with a 1.210 OPS in the sixth spot (63 at-bats).

The greatness of Sidney Crosby and the Penguins in house also rubbed off on Gerrit Cole who looked like 2015 Gerrit Cole.

Cole who rarely pitches seven innings, allowed 3 hits and 1 earned run through seven for his 4th win of the season. He struck out 3 and walked 3.
