Joe Morgan and Sonny Jackson would be proud.
Their Houston Astros belted 16 hits and pelted the Pittsburgh Pirates 10-6 today at McKechnie Field, thanks in part to Hunter Pence - 3 for 3, 2 RBIs and a home run.
Hard to believe, but spring training baseball is practically over. McKechnie Field will host its final game of the spring at 1:05 p.m. Sunday against those pesky Tampa Bay Rays.
If you come, you could be part of history - the Pirates are 5,787 fans shy of setting an all-time Mckechnie Field attendance record.
You could the one who walks in the park Sunday and sets the record.
How 'bout that?
This is John Lembo, signing off.
