The batters box did no favors today for the Bucs offense. If they weren’t slipping trying to run out of it, they were heading back to the dugout after striking out. With 14 K’s on the day, they did nothing to help the solid pitching performance outside of Daniel Vogelbach’s three hits and Jack Suwunski’s two.
Zach Thompson came from the IL today and lasted 4.2 innings. DiNardo discusses how he felt about his return albeit giving up 2 earned. With the game still in tact, the Pirates bullpen did their job today to shut down the Brewers offense who actually had even less hits than the Pirates.
We also discuss the latest trade that happened as well as the Cherington quotes on Kevin Newman’s return.
