One video to sum up first six innings of Reds-Pirates game

As I type this, the Reds-Pirates wild-card game is in the sixth inning. The Pirates lead 5-1.

For me, three big storylines have emerged.

1. PNC Park is rocking. I mean, it's an unbelievably raucus environment -- one of the best atmospheres I've ever seen at a baseball game.

2. The Pirates are hitting the ball hard. Not only do they have five runs on 10 hits -- four extra-base hits -- but they've made several very loud outs.

3. Francisco Liriano is in complete control while Reds starter Johnny Cueto appeared flustered and performed poorly.

All three can be seen below in one simple video clip.

The Pirates fans are heckling Cueto by slowly and derisively chanting his last name. Cueto then drops the ball on the mound, much to the delight of the sellout crowd. On the next pitch, Russell Martin rips a home run and the crowd goes ballistic.

Here you go:

Again, that just about sums up what we've seen so far. This game isn't over, though. Not just yet.
