Tonight will be the third installment of “Pirates Playback” on ROOT Sports. You can catch this week’s game both tonight and Thursday at 7:00 pm.
The featured game is the Pirates vs. Rockies matchup from April 24th, 2012. It was a back-and-forth battle all night long, and an unlikely hero came up big for the Bucs. From our recap of the game:
Star of the Game: Clint Barmes. For the first time this year, Barmes had a great game. Three hits and a huge home run. If he can pick up his offense, it will be nice to have some productivity at the bottom of the lineup.
70 days until Opening Day.
