10,000 Leagues Under the League

The Pirates 5-3 loss the Reds moves them with in 3 loses from clinching a losing record for the season. The loss completed a 4 game sweep in Cincinnati putting the giving the Pirates their 50th road loss of the season. On a bright note Garrett Jones hit the 10,000th all-time home run in the Pirates’ 123 year history. So to celebrate this achievement we are counting down the 10,000 greatest Pirates home runs of all time.
