This team continues to show their heart and fight
Friday night the Pirates scratched a run across the board in the top of the 8th inning to take a 3-2 lead. After the Nationals tied the game in the bottom of the 8th, the Bucs were able to win it in the 10th when a three-run rally was capped off by a pinch hit home run by Moran.
On Sunday, the Bucs rallied again late. With the game tied in the 9th inning Jason Martin came through with a go-ahead double that scored Bell. This gave the team a 4-3 lead they would not relinquish.
The 2019 edition of the Pirates have been the battling Bucs thus far. A lot of the credit for this falls at the feet of manager Clint Hurdle and his coaching staff. Typically when a sports team is a group of fighters like this one has been it stems from the culture created by the coaching staff.
