AFL: North Melbourne v Port Adelaide – live!

Preamble

Hello GBGers (that sounds a bit wrong but I’m rolling with it) and welcome to Round 3 of Saturday Night football. It’s North Melbourne and Port Adelaide tonight and as my clumsy acronym indicates, we’re doing this thing on a goal-by-goal basis.

Russ will be here shortly. Take a look at his weekend preview in the meantime.

On the topic of Port Adelaide, they’re yet to win a game this season and now face another tough interstate assignment against North Melbourne on Saturday night. These two sides have produced some cracking contests over the past two years and this might be the same story, Port battling hard to get a win on the board and North just as likely to careen between their best and worst traits as much as settle at either end of the scale. The Roos also have a solid record in beating Port at Etihad Stadium, not an insignificant statistic.

The Pirates remembered how to hit the baseball on Friday, and it was good:

  • Every starting position player reached base at least once.
  • Gregory Polanco and Starling Marte both had huge games, which they both badly needed. Polanco had three hits including a double and was motoring around the bases all night. Marte had an infield hit, a steal, and a colossal blast to put the game away in the eighth.
  • Josh Harrison, Andrew McCutchen, and Pedro Alvarez all delivered big hits and had good at bats in key spots.
  • Sean Rodriguez, getting his first Bucco start (it was a standard off day for Walker), had an excellent game – two hits including an RBI, a ninja-like sac bunt, and a steal.
  • The Bucs did not look clueless against Jimmy Nelson, like they did a week ago. Then in the eighth, they greeted their favorite relief pitcher – Jonathan Broxton – with a three spot to put the game out of reach.

Throw in a solid (not great, but certainly adequate) start by Vance Worley and some strong relief from Hughes/Watson and it’s a good win to start this weekend series. The Brewers, especially without injured CF Carlos Gomez, are a scuffling team (the only team in baseball that has yet to reach three wins) and the Pirates should take advantage at home. They were able to break the seal tonight and added on late to lock it up.

Notes:

  • Mark Melancon picked up his first save (it was his first save opportunity) – a real cheapie after Hurdle brought him in with two outs in the ninth. Antonio Bastardo, who really doesn’t seem to have anyone’s trust right now, was lifted after allowing one run and getting two outs in the ninth.
  • It was nice to see the Pirates terrorizing another team’s pitcher-catcher woes on the base paths. Something was off with Nelson and Lucroy and the Bucs took advantage for three easy SB’s (though they nailed Harrison with a pitch out). Polanco also went first to third on Cutch’s ground out to deep short, which was ridiculous.
  • Alvarez was intentionally walked in the sixth. It was the Pirates’ first walk since Saturday. (Andrew Lambo drew a legit pinch hit walk in the seventh to really end the drought.)
  • Root Sports glitch or new Pirate?
