After the Pittsburgh Pirates crushed four bombs last night in front of 45,000 plus at Busch Stadium, we started thinking about all of the runs the Pirates have scored this month. Guess what? The Pirates are a juggernaut.
Who leads the Major Leagues in runs scored in the month of June? You guessed it. The Bucs.
The Pirates have scored 139 runs this month. More than the Angels, Yankees, Red Sox, Rangers, you name the team the prolific Bucs are scoring more than any of them.
The team is slugging .457 and has put up a .787 OPS in June, both good for fourth in the bigs.
The Buccos have belted 38 bombs, which puts them in third behind the Yankees (43) and Toronto (41)
Does this month have to end?
