CF Jose Bautista
1B Edwin Encarnacion
3B Brett Lawrie
DH Juan Francisco
RF Moises Sierra
C Josh Thole
2B Jonathan Diaz

Reyes, Cabrera, Bautista, Encarnacion, Francisco, and Sierra were all born in the Dominican Republic.

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.
