Garrett Jones Breaks Pirates' Month-Long Multi-Run Homer Drought

The P-G notes that Garrett Jones’ two-run homer in the fifth broke a skid that dated back to June 8 of the Pirates not hitting a homer with one or more runners on base. You know when the author or an article about something like this makes sure to note that the June 8 in question is the most recent June 8, it’s been a long time.

The P-G also notes that yesterday and today mark the first time since May of 2006 that the Pirates have had 17 hits or more in consecutive games.
