In Friday’s double header, the Pittsburgh Pirates had a pretty meh day offensively.
Game one saw the Bucs score just 2 runs, while walking just twoce and collecting just a pair of extra base hits. In the night cap, they did score 4 runs, but, again they walked just twice while collecting just two extra base hits.
Satruday night the Bucs again mustered just 2 runs, this was despite drawing six walks and collecting seven hits. However, the team went 0-for-9 with runners in scoring position and they left 11 men on base.
As was the case on Saturday night, the Pittsburgh Pirates had plenty of opportunities to score on Sunday. Once again, the offensive struggled mightily with RISP. The team went just 2-for-9 with RISP, but, thanks to great bullpen work, it was enough to pick up a victory.
Overall in the series, the team was just 4-for-33 with RISP. Woof.
The Pittsburgh Pirates had plenty of opportunities to score over the weekend. However, continued struggles with RISP was a major issue for the Pirates. Due to this, the overall grade for the Pirate offense in this series is not good.
