Pirates Top Games of 2023: No. 1 - An electric home opener

We finally made it. The best game from the Pittsburgh Pirates’ 2023 season and it’s one that should come as no surprise to anyone.

We go all the way back to April 7 when a sell-out crowd saw the Bucs beat the Chicago White Sox, 13-9, in the home opener. Not only did it mark the first of many entertaining games at PNC Park in 2023, but it also showcased the long-awaited return of a Pittsburgh legend: Andrew McCutchen.

Days before the Pirates and White Sox took the field, several preparations were made to make it an evening no one would forget.
