andrew-mccutchen-three-homers.JPGDespite what you may think, there are still players left on the Pittsburgh Pirates.

One of them, Andre McCutchen blasted three home runs in the Bucs' 11-6 victory over the Washington Nationals tonight in a matchup of NL East cellar-dwellers.

The last Pirate to do this was none other than Cubs third baseman Aramis Ramirez in 2001.

McCutchen, who is known more for his speed (and awesome hair) than his power, entered the game with just three round-trippers on the season.

Aramis Ramirez never played for the Padres.

Kyle responds: He did in a world without copy-editors. I suck.

It's Andrew McCutchen and the Pirates aren't in the NL East. They are in the NL Central.
