We travelled by bus to the heart of the city, then crossed the Mighty Allegheny River on foot over the 6th Street Bridge.
After taking our seats on the third base line, we admired the view that PNC park offered of downtown Pittsburgh.
The Pirates were losing to the Cardinals, 2-1, but we were not ashamed to support our team in our (free) Pirates hats!
The 10th inning gave ample time for darkness to fall over the city, and give us an even more spectacular view.
And then, the main attraction and end of the evening: fireworks!
