All in the family

Outfielder Darnell McDonald, who did not start Sunday's game but entered the game in the 2nd inning, is the cousin of Pirate's Sunday starting pitcher James McDonald. The two had never faced each other before today.

So who won today's familial face-off? It was a draw. James struck out Darnell swinging to end the 3rd inning with 2 men on. In the 6th inning Darnell reached on a throwing error by James, (but was caught stealing 3 batters later to end the inning.)
