The Pittsburgh Pirates have done it. They have clinched their first winning season since 1992.

The Pirates edged the Texas Rangers 1-0 on Monday night after a phenomenal pitcher’s duel between rookie right-hander Gerrit Cole and Yu Darvish. Entering the game, the Pirates had lost a season-high four consecutive contests since earning their 81st win last Tuesday.
