Catcher Jonathan Lucroy, who suffered a fractured right little finger early in Spring Training, made his season debut Wednesday and went 1-for-4 with a run scored.
Pirates: Tabata's streak halted at 10
Jose Tabata's season-long hitting streak ended at 10 games, as he went 0-for-2 while drawing two walks.
With his next home run, Ryan Doumit will break a tie with Smoky Burgess and Manny Sanguillen for fourth-most by a catcher in Pittsburgh history, at 48. The Pirates have been playing ball for 130 years, so which is more remarkable -- that the franchise record for catchers' homers is only 66, or that it is held by Jason Kendall, who has hit a total of eight homers in 3,021 at-bats since leaving the Bucs after the 2004 season?
