ERIC KNOPSNYDER | Resilience resonates with Bucs
The key word in the Pirates’ locker room after their 5-3 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday was resiliency.
As in, the Pirates showed a lot of resiliency in getting the victory. They showed a lot of resiliency in coming back from a 9-1 drubbing in Game 1 of their National League division series to take the next two games over the National League Central Division champion Cardinals. And they showed a lot of resiliency during the regular season, when they won 94 games to snap the longest stretch of futility in North American professional sports history.
