It’s been noted by many that Stan Musial, who died last weekend at the age of 92, shared a unique personal connection with the people of St. Louis. And examples of that continue to pour in. Darren Pang of FOX Sports Midwest presents the St. Louis Blues’ warmup sweaters for tonight’s game against the Minnesota Wild:
The Blues beat the rival Detroit Red Wings 6-0 on the night of Stan’s death. They’re 4-1 on the year.
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.
