Game on!

- It appears McKechnie Field's first rain delay of the spring is over. The tarp is being lifted, the sky has brightened somewhat and both teams are back in their dugouts, so it appears baseball is back. Pirates manager Clint Hurdle and Orioles skipper Buck Showalter are talking to the umpires, but it appears they are going to try and finish the game, which the Pirates lead 6-5 after six innings.

- Today's attendance was 3,720, bringing McKechnie's total this spring to 82,390, third highest all-time behind 2011 (88,003) and '09 (87,206). Average attendance this spring was 5,492, just missing last year's record mark of 5,500. There were six sellouts this spring, one shy of the record set in 2008 and '07.
