This Day In Cutchstory: September 19, 2012

As part of my HBP Moments 1/1 search for Cutch's Career Homerun totals, I added another card to show on This Day in Cutchstory

How did the boxscore look that day?

The Pirates fell to the Brewers 3-1.  Kyle MacPherson made the start for the Bucs and pitched himself out of a lot of trouble early on.  The Pirates offense couldn't get any traction against Marco Estrada as he pitched 7 scoreless innings while surrendering only 4 hits. The Pirates only run came on a solo shot by Andrew McCutchen off John Axford in the 9th inning.

Cutch went 2 for 4 that day, raising his average to .340 for the season.  He also stole his 19th stolen base of the year in that game.  Cutch was winning the batting title when the game was over as Buster Posey was batting .334 at close of day.
