Pirates Postgame: The Good News Is Cruz

Published

on

There was a lot of good takeaways from today’s game, but once again Oneil Cruz stood out with his play. With another 112mph hit RBI single and some nice plays in the field, how can you not be excited to see this kid?

The other rookie making some noise in his promotion is Bligh Madris. Will he be something that sticks? There could be reason to see that he might just be a late bloomer, as tonight he also hit his 1st HR of his career and his 4th hits in two games. However, what is this team going to do with all these Young Bucs to get them at bats?

Lastly, let’s not forget how Roansy Contreras only gave up 1-run in today’s game while not looking his best. What concerns are we seeing from Roansy? Also, with these concerns it is pleasant to see how a young pitcher can not have his best stuff but still get the results.
