Interleague is Over!

Tonight’s win over Toronto accomplished a lot of things for the Pirates.

First and foremost it gave them a winning record this season in interleague play. It also gave them a 16 win month and a winning record for the first three months of the season. Even in addition to all of that it clinched a winning record at the half way point.

The most interesting thing is the winning interleague record. Look at how they have done since its inception.
