The Pirates never make it look easy but no matter what I've ever said about the Buc's, I've never accused their players of quitting which is why they've managed to scrape together two straight walk off wins. The Pirates have a few things going for them. Josh Bell has been dropped in the line to the 6th spot behind Palanco, taking some of the pressure off of him to carry the load. That gives a shot in the arm to Bryan Reynolds and Colin Moran hitting 3rd and 4th. The addition of defensive wizard Ke' Bryan Hayes hitting .381 since his call up gives Pittsburgh some stability at the bottom of the order. It still isn't great but i know this a team that won't quit and will surprise better teams along the way.
