Remember the name

Pirates outfielder Andrew McCutchen won’t have the fondest memories of playing in Yankee Stadium. He went 0-for-2 at the plate… not that anyone really knew he was up.

“My first time up, they announced me as Greg Golson,” he said. “My next time up, they said I was Dexter Fowler. It’s like, ‘Can you get my name right one time!”

McCutchen nearly made a name for himself by taking Hector Rondon deep in his second and final at-bat in the third, but the ball hooked foul.

“I thought it was gone for sure,” he said. “That pitcher was like, ‘You’re not getting another fastball!'”
