There was some decent pitching yesterday

I made a reference in ATH this morning about there being a lot of good pitching performances, but I didn’t realize how many good ones. Try this on for size:

Stark factoids tend to be hit or miss in terms of overall interestigness, but this one is definitely a hit.

I, for one, welcome our new Dead Ball Era overlords.

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.
