Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Chicago Cubs (NL Wildcard Game)

Jake Arrieta dominated the Pittsburgh Pirates in the NL Wildcard game as the Chicago Cubs advance to the division series. Chicago came into PNC Park, promptly posted four runs and never looked back as Arrieta pitched a complete game on just 113 pitches. This is the second of back-to-back wildcard losses for Pittsburgh, and a disappointing end to a fantastic 98-win season.

Charlie Wilmoth (@WilmothC), editor for the Pirate’s blog Bucs Dugout, and author of the book Dry Land: Winning After 20 Years At Sea with the Pittsburgh Pirates, joins the podcast to discuss the postseason that might have been for the Bucs, and we look ahead to the next round of the MLB postseason.
