How excited is this burg about its Pirates?

"Well, my father, lost his voice the other night," said Pittsburgh born and bred, Pirates second baseman Neil Walker. "He’s more excited about this than his own career and for a guy who played six years in the majors, that’s saying something."

His father, Tom Walker, pitched six years in the majors and was at noisy PNC Park as the Pirates scored twice in the eighth inning against the St. Louis Cardinals for a 5-3 win and a 2-1 lead in the best-of-five National League Division Series.
