2:21 AM ET PITTSBURGH — Rich Hill treated the Pittsburgh Pirates to a 99-pitch clinic Wednesday night. Or perhaps it’s more accurate to say he subjected them to it. Hill overwhelmed Pittsburgh hitters with his 90 mph fastball, alternately froze and made them wave at his curveball, and flummoxed them for nine innings in the most Tom Browning- and Mark Buehrle-esque of ways.
