Pirates And Reds Both Clinch Playoff Spots

Pirates_Jason_Grilli_2013The field of teams for the playoffs in the National League is now in place.

The Pirates beat the Cubs 2-1 tonight in Chicago while the Reds topped the Mets 3-2 in 10 innings in Cincinnati. Combine that with the Nationals’ loss to the Cardinals tonight and that means that the Pirates and Reds have both clinched playoff spots.

Kudos to the Pirates and their long-suffering fans, as this is the franchise’s first postseason berth since way back in 1992.
