After giving up 2 solo shots in the first, Zach Thompson settled in nicely and pitched effectively for his remaining start. So why did Derek Shelton pull him after just 67 pitches? This decision not only irritated Jim & DiNardo, but it looked as if it likely cost the game for the Pirates.
With a whopping 42 strikeout in the last 3 games, the offense has still looked very bad. However, Bryan Reynolds has continued his hot bat going 8-for-12 in this Atlanta series with a HR today. has he become Mr. June?
