Jim Duquette and his daughter are doing well following her kidney transplant

Last week we learned about about former Mets GM Jim Duquette donating his kidney to his ailing daughter.  Today Bob Klapisch has their story:

It’s been one week since the transplant, and Lindsey’s doctors believe her nightmare, which began in 2004, finally may be over.

Her new kidney, Jim’s gift, is functioning at 100 percent efficiency. Even though she will be on an immune-suppressing medication for the rest of her days, Lindsey soon could return to the life she’d nearly forgotten.

So far, so good and best wishes to the them both.

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.
