Yasiel Puig may not play the game the right way and all of that noise, but he’s working hard this offseason:
I don’t know if running with parachutes tied to your back is a common athletic training technique. But even if it is, it’s 100 times more fun to watch Yasiel Puig do it.
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.
