During Sunday's Cardinals-Pirates NLDS Game 3, Marlon Byrd hit a two-run single in the first to bring the Bucs to an early 2-0 lead. Pittsburgh's KDKA radio broadcasters Steve Blass and Greg Brown were excited. But how excited?

So excited that they dedicated a short version of Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Free Bird" (should that be Free Byrd?) to the right fielder at the top of the next inning. Enjoy.
