Erik Kratz hit a solo home run in Monday's win over the Giants.
In a game that featured 11 hits combined, it was the 36-year-old journeyman catcher who homered off all-everything ace Madison Bumgarner to lead the Bucs to victory. The homer was Kratz' first of the season -- his first since 2014, in fact -- and just his third hit in 47 at-bats. He'll continue to get some run with the Pirates while Francisco Cervelli is out, but Kratz isn't a big league starting catcher at this point. Jun 20 - 9:58 PM
