Andrew McCutchen knew the tribute video was coming at PNC Park. He wasn’t sure if he’d cry, and he didn’t care.

Turns out he had to make it through two — one before his first at-bat here as a Giant and another before he took the field. The verdict, not that it matters: emotional without any obvious sobs. The second one seemed to get him a little more than the first.

Fans cheered a little more for the first, as they should’ve — except for when Jameson Taillon struck McCutchen out. That brought out some boos. Odds are they weren’t for the batter. The Pirates beat San Francisco 11-2.
