MLB.com Brewers beat reporter Adam McCalvy snapped a picture of MLB.com Cardinals beat reporter Matthew Leach trying to get some work done while Will Ferrell invaded the press box at the Home Run Derby:
I’m a big fan of Ferrell and also of Leach, so I find the photo endlessly amusing.
Neither the Pirates nor the Tigers could manage any offense during Thursday afternoon’s game at PNC Park. That is, until outfielder Corey Dickerson launched a walk-off solo home run off of Alex Wilson with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning.
Dickerson, 28, has been solid for the Pirates for the first month of the season. He’s batting .314/.348/.500 with a pair of home runs, 13 RBI, and 13 runs scored in 92 plate appearances. The Pirates acquired him from the Rays in late February in exchange for journeyman pitcher Daniel Hudson and Single-A infielder Tristan Gray.
