Pirates DVR: Oneil Cruz Four Hit Game, Blake Sabol, Brendt Citta Double

Welcome to the Pirates Prospects daily video rundown, where we pull some of the top videos of the Pittsburgh Pirates across the internet.

Daily Video Rundown

Oneil Cruz

Cruz has been a Statcast darling ever since he became a permanent resident at the major league level. The shortstop broke the record for hardest hit ball in the history of Statcast, and makes frequent trips to the top of the leaderboards.

Monday he did something a little against the grain for him, as he picked up four hits on the night but didn’t have one of those signature ‘Cruz’ missiles. In fact his highest exit velocity was ‘just’ 94 mph, and two of his hits clocked in under 70 mph.

Blake Sabol

The Indianapolis Indians lost their game on Monday 17-1 and finished the night with just five hits, so there weren’t many highlights to go through.

Of the five hits, Sabol picked up two of them, and scored the team’s only run as well.

Brendt Citta

Sabol picked up two hits, but Citta was the only player to hit one for extra-bases as his double drove in the only run of the game.

Jack Suwinski

Suwinski continues to rake at home for the Pirates, owning one of the most extreme home/road splits you will see (.972 home OPS, .364 road), picking up a pair of doubles Monday night, which included this one that came 103.6 mph off the bat.

Anthony began writing over 10 years ago, starting a personal blog to cover the 2011 MLB draft, where the Pirates selected first overall. After bouncing around many websites covering hockey, he refocused his attention to baseball, his first love when it comes to sports. He eventually found himself here at Pirates Prospects in late 2021, where he covers the team’s four full season minor league affiliates.

Strange not seeing Votto on first for the Reds. Good to see a couple of hustle hits for Cruz.
