'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

ATLANTA — The Pirates placed infielder Chase d'Arnaud on the 15-day disabled list with a chip fracture to his right pinky finger Wednesday and recalled right-hander Chris Leroux from Triple-A Indianapolis to help replenish a depleted bullpen.

The only reliever not used in Tuesday's marathon game was Joel Hanrahan.

Not surprisingly, Daniel McCutchen was not available to pitch last night after his 5.2-inning, 92-pitch performance the night before. Also unavailable were Jason Grilli, who pitched three innings, and Chris Resop, who pitched one inning and appeared in a game for the third day in a row.

» Catcher Mike McKenry was given the night off after staying in the game for all 19 innings Tuesday. Hurdle said he hopes to find a day off for the other six players who played the entire game. The Pirates' next off day isn't until Aug. 11.

» In addition to being the longest game time-wise in the Pirates' 125-year history, it was also the longest in terms of innings since a 20-inning game against the Cubs on July 6, 1980, at Three Rivers Stadium. And the conclusion of the game, at 1:50 a.m., was the latest since a 2:04 a.m. finish in a doubleheader against the Cubs in Pittsburgh on June 20, 1983.

» Hurdle revealed that Paul Maholm and Kevin Correia offered to pitch if needed Tuesday night. They were going to go to Hanrahan if McCutchen could get through one more inning, then go from there.

"(Correia and Maholm) were both going to go see who could get loose quickest, have a little throw-off and be the next guy in," Hurdle said.
