This homestand was the most encouraging the Pirates had all season. The took on what is arguably the best team in baseball and won two of three, and followed that up by finishing with two straight wins against a considerably weaker Phillies team.
Now the Bucs will continue their battle with the NL East, as they travel to Atlanta for four games with the Bravos before returning to PNC Park for a weekend tilt with the New York Mets. Given that both of those teams are, well, awful, this could be a golden opportunity for Pittsburgh to get back to the .500 mark.
I would like to take this time to gush about the great Adam Frazier. Since coming off the DL, he has been hitting everything in site, and like his teammate David Freese said in an interview after Saturday’s game, Frazier has the potential to win a batting title one day. He is that good at raking. I am proud to say that I was high on Frazier from day one, and hopefully, the rest of the city is starting to see that.
Well, that’s all I have to say about this homestand. Till next time!
