Announcer jinx to the extreme in the bottom of the third. First, after talking about how Cruz is using a shorter bat and it is translating to him striking out so much less, he strikes out. Then with Hayes up, talking about how he's owned the hitting zone the entire spring, he grounds into an inning ending double play.

Olivares almost gets thrown out at second on a double off the fence. Nice play by the CF for sure, but the dude looked like he thought he was out the way he started running. Usually it's because they think they hit a HR.

Pirates have in the order consecutively Joe, Olivares, Gonzales, Sanchez. Those are 4 guys who I stated yesterday I think are on thin ice.

Not impressed with this Olivares guy. Just let a lazy fly ball drop in that he misread, and didn't even have a chance to catch. Probably finds grass anyhow, and I know about ST and the sun and all, but wow, the dude looks slow out there

Nice hearing from Jumpin Jack Flash Wilson.

Chase Anderson gives up his first hit and first run of ST, he's looked exceptionally sharp so far.

Cruz, Reynolds, Hayes with back to back to back singles with 2 outs to tie the game. Passed ball has them on second and third, but Cutch whiffs on two hanging breaking balls, and you can tell he's PO'd at himself.

Looks like I put the jinx on Chase Anderson, gives up a HR top of the 6th
