WATCH: Andrew McCutchen makes amazing diving catch, then doubles up runner at first

  • David Whitlock

The Pittsburgh Pirates continue to be one of the most exciting team to watch in baseball, and their unquestionable leaders is Gold Glove OF Andrew McCutchen.  The three-time All-Star “Cutch” leads on the field by example both with his bat and his glove.  The latter was on full display in this amazing diving catch on Carlos Beltran, then pops to his feet to double up Matt Holliday by a half step (courtesy of MLB.com).

The Pirates won the first game of Tuesday’s double header with the Cardinals, pushing them a half-game up on their NL Central rivals, who are mired in a 5-game losing streak.  Talk about putting a team on your back.

David Whitlock - manager

David (a.k.a. Longhorndave or lhd_on_sports) joined the staff late in the 2012 season and moved to Site Manager in early 2013. A lifelong Houston Astros fan (and mini-season ticket holder for 9 years) he attends 20+ games per year. A statistics freak, David still keeps score the "old fashioned way" on occasion (and has kept manual score of World Series games since 1986 and retains the sheets). He was a featured guest weekly on the Phil Naessens Show. He is also a Texas Longhorns alumnus and huge football and baseball fan of his alma mater. When he isn't watching or writing about baseball, he works as a contractor at NASA Johnson Space Center. He lives by the mantra "a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day anywhere else."
