What a couple of interesting games the Pirates have played the past few days. Not only with all the weird calls and mishaps, but two 8-7 victories in way of a player hitting 3 HR’s. Today’s MVP was Michael Perez who went 4-4 with 3 HR’s and 5 RBI’s. Along with Perez, the young bucs have been earning their keep and helping out offensively as well. Oneil Cruz and Jack Suwinski had back to back HR’s today while making this upcoming roster decision to be pretty compelling as guys come back from the IL.
This game was also interesting due to the 8-4 lead in the 9th and David Bednar looking like he is clearly not 100% as he gave up 3-runs. Was it too early for him in a game with a 4-run lead to pitch? Ether way, Yerry De Los Santos shuts it down and earns his 2nd career save in the victory.
