Comments on: McDonald Solid, Bucs Bats Break Out in 9-3 Win Your best source for news on the Pittsburgh Pirates and their minor league system.

Pedro had some great at bats over the weekend, including a double off lefty Johnny Venters. Venters was on, too……hitting 97 twice during the inning.
Players I was more impressed with after seeing them in person
Pedro – the light is on for him right now and he seems as confident as a Pirate
Grilli – Was just dominant in his inning Saturday night striking out the side.
Lincoln – outside of the Prado homerun he was terrific in relief, consistently hitting 94
Tabata – he’s never going to hit many long balls But he had at several grated batts over the weekend
