PITTSBURGH — If Saturday night’s win over the Philadelphia Phillies was any indication of what the Pittsburgh Pirates have on their hands moving forward, they should be thrilled.
Several of the Pirates’ top rookies played key roles in the Pirates’ 7-6 comeback win over the Phillies at PNC Park.
The Pirates’ lineup featured five rookies and rookie right-hander Quinn Priester was the starting pitcher.
Priester, despite a less-than-stellar pitching line, earned the win in his second-straight start after completing five-plus innings and allowing five runs. He struck out a career-best seven batters.
