Keller is Stellar

By on March 29, 2022

Mitch Keller had a mid-season like outing this afternoon scattering five hits through four innings, striking out four with zero earned runs as the Buccos beat the Bo-Sox 6-2 and pick up his first win of the spring.

As Eddie Michels stated earlier in the spring, the Pirates may have something special this year.

Daniel Vogalbach, Hoy Park and Kevin Newman all went downtown with solo shots. Vogalbach and Park were off of Redsox starter Nick Pivetta, who took the L and Newman torched reliever Jake Dirkman.
