“One Sweet Day” + Matt Harvey’s elbow mashup

Here’s a video that combines three of my all-time favorite things: Mid-1990s Boyz II Men, longing for Matt Harvey, and amusingly dumb stuff on the internet.

(Complicated handshake to David Temple, who’s one of the leading “dumb things on the internet” creators.)

Pirates prospect shortstop Cole Tucker stepped up for an injured Erik González on Saturday and wasted little time proving that he was ready to shoulder major-league responsibilities. After starting the game 0-for-2, Tucker pounced on Derek Holland‘s 2-2 sinker and sent it out to center field for a two-run shot in the fifth inning.

Following the tie-breaking blast, Tucker responded to cheers from the crowd with… perhaps a little more ceremony than the occasion required. He was the second of the Pirates’ prospects to record his first major-league hit during the game, as outfielder Bryan Reynolds also hit a single off of Holland in the fourth.

Jung Ho Kang struck out to end the inning, after which a rain delay was called. The Pirates currently lead the Giants 3-1.
