Musgrove pitches, hits, runs Pirates past Phils for 5-1 win

Joe Musgrove scattered two hits over six innings, collected his first double of the season and scored on a textbook head-first slide to beat a throw by Philadelphia right fielder Bryce Harper and lead the Pittsburgh Pirates to a 5-1 win on Saturday...

"All I ever wanted from the time I was a kid was to be one of you," said Jayson Stark of the baseball writers who honored him with the Spink Award for meritorious service. In an eloquent acceptance speech Sat. at Cooperstown's Doubleday Field, Stark paid tribute to members of his family and profession and the baseball figures who've provided a wealth of material. He recounted the jocular, but light-hitting pitcher Larry Andersen saying, "I'm a .308 career hitter. I played in 13 seasons and got a hit in four of them. Hey, make the stats work for you." Stark said, with attribution to Game of Thrones, "There's nothing more powerful than a good story." And he appreciatively asked and answered "Who gets to live the life they've dreamed of since they were 10 years old? I do."

On the eve of receiving the Spink Award for baseball writing, Jayson Stark — who celebrated his 68th birthday Fri. — said in our Cooperstown interview: "I love it when people tell me nobody makes me smile when I read them, like you do. Nobody makes me laugh when I read them, like you do. Nobody communicates the fun and the joy and the love of baseball, like you do. And if that's my legacy, I've led a good life, because I'm one of the lucky ones. I've never felt like this is work, because every day I get to do something that I love. I love baseball. I love writing. I love writing about baseball."
