DENVER -- The Pirates retooled their offensive approach over the offseason, and with nearly a month's sample size to analyze, the efforts are paying off.
Entering Thursday, the Bucs have the third-highest run total in the Majors, with 119 through their first 22 games. That's 5.41 runs per game, and -- fun fact -- when the Pirates score four or more runs, they're 13-3 (.813 winning percentage).
