Of note: Tony Sanchez was 2 for 4 with two doubles. He has a .464 batting average [url=http://www.showbusinessreport.com/img/do_they_sell_ray_bans_at_target_232401.html]do they sell ray bans at target[/url]
in spring training.
News of the day: Jung Ho Kang was 0 for 4 with two strikeouts in his first game back from a three-day break spent working on timing and bringing the Korean star up to speed.
Kang had a double and home run among his first four plate appearances in [url=http://www.chamika-tours.de/images/deutschland_trikot_china_340243.html]deutschland trikot china[/url]
spring training, but is 1 for 23 since. He has struck out in seven of his past 11 at-bats.
“We’ve just got to let him hit and continue to work, manager Clint Hurdle said. “Again, it’s spring training. [url=http://9thstreetclinics.com/images/new_balance_vintage_224113.html]new balance vintage[/url]
The number of at-bats are minimal, in my eyes. We’ll just keep working. We’ve got a lot of guys who have work to continue to do. That’s the beauty of spring training.
Hurdle said the Pirates are not asking Kang to change the leg kick that begins his swing. [url=http://www.showbusinessreport.com/img/ray_ban_vision_project_x_lyrics_524355.html]ray ban vision project x lyrics[/url]
Kang and a few other hitters will go to Pirate City Thursday to get extra at-bats against minor league pitching.
“You don’t want to overwhelm the guy, Hurdle said. “When you’ve got 14 different players offering thoughts everybody means well and wants to help, but we just need to limit the [url=http://www.handelcon.com/css/ban_kinh_rayban_fake_ha_noi_053243.html]ban kinh rayban fake ha noi[/url]
information and continue to let the man go out and play.”
