IF YOU WIN, THEY WILL COME:
Saturday's crowd at PNC largest ever (Jenifer Langosch and Laura Myers, 6/05/11, MLB.com)
Saturday night's Pirates-Phillies game at PNC Park was played before the largest crowd in stadium history.
The announced attendance for the night was 39,441, which beat the previous record of 39,392, set on Aug. 11, 2001, against San Diego.
"Everybody loves to play in front of a big crowd," manager Clint Hurdle said. "It can give you an adrenaline boost, there's no doubt. And then when bigger situations -- those game-changing situations -- come up, it just works. I've always loved it; there's no player that doesn't love it."
