The Pittsburgh Pirates were down 4-0 but then came back to beat the visiting Colorado Rockies by the score of 6-4. The Pirates held the Rockies scoreless the final six innings of the game and that is what allowed them to keep chipping away and come away with the victory.
Luis Rivas was the big man at the plate for the Pirates as he finished 3-4 with three rbi. The Pirates also got rbi from Jason Bay and Chris Gomez in the game. It was great to see the offense as they just kept the pressure on the Rockies as the game went on. This just might give the team more confidence at the plate and hopefully some more runs on the scoreboard in the future.
Pirates starting pitcher Yoslan Herrera lasted five innings as he gave up all four runs to the Rockies. Herrera came away with a no decision in the game. Jason Davis earned his first victory of the season and is now 1-0. Tyler Yates tossed the ninth inning and came away with his first save of the season as well.
