Hard to imagine one day on the job was truly enough for new Mets hitting coach Lamar Johnson to make much of a difference. It only looked that way.
Moments before the game, rapper 50 Cent went into his best windup and was comically off target with a ceremonial first pitch that sailed way wide of home plate.
Struggling to locate his blazing sinker, Treinen endured some growing pains in a 3-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates on Thursday night. The right-hander gave up two runs on 5 2/3 innings, striking out four and walking five, with both walks turning into Pittsburgh runs.
Washington Nationals rookie pitcher Blake Treinen didn't have the added pressure of facing a Cy Young winner in his second major league start.
Besides a solo home run by Ian Desmond, the Nationals couldn't get much going on offense in a 3-1 loss to the Pirates in Pittsburgh.
Solid starting pitching. A couple of defensive gems. Just enough hitting to make a difference.
With the Pirates playing their first nationally televised Sunday night game from PNC Park in the facility's 13-year history, everything was set up for Pittsburgh to win once again in dramatic fashion.
The Pittsburgh Pirates probably thought they were in for another long night.
Sergio Santos had a chance to close the door for the Toronto Blue Jays.
Edinson Volquez spent four years watching Johnny Cueto evolve into one of the National League's best pitchers when the two were teammates in Cincinnati from 2008-11.
Hitting was supposed to be the Pittsburgh Pirates' weakness coming into the season yet they lead the major leagues in home runs through the first 16 games of the season.
Gerrit Cole wasn't at all surprised that his winning streak was broken by another pitcher swinging the bat.
No homers, no two-out hits. The Reds were all out of them once the game resumed.
Mike Leake still thinks of himself as a hitter. He's even holding a bat on one of his 2014 baseball cards.
Jim Henderson got the big out, and made the big play.
"I'm starting to string some good at-bats together," McCutchen said. "It was a bit of a struggle early but I'm starting to feel pretty good now."
Pittsburgh star Andrew McCutchen had two steals but was lifted after lining out to end the eighth, when he told manager Clint Hurdle he may have hurt an ankle.
