Washington Nationals vs Pittsburgh Pirates MLB Baseball Match Preview

Perhaps the Pittsburgh Pirates should make it a regular practice to use their pregame time on the field to revisit spring training. After all, it seemed to work Tuesday before their 4-1 win over the visiting Washington Nationals.

The Pirates had been struggling mightily scoring one run during a three-game losing streak, winning just seven times in their first 35 games after the All-Star break — before they changed things up Tuesday, resorting to going back to basics.

Before Tuesday’s game, the Pirates ran full-team fundamental fielding drills with crowd noise pumped over the sound system at PNC Park. Then they quieted the red-hot Nationals, even with Pirates starter Chris Archer exiting after one inning because of a shoulder problem.

Pittsburgh manager Clint Hurdle called it “one of the best team victories we’ve had all year.”
