Yesterday’s umpire scorecard. That inside the zone accuracy….

UPDATE: Colin Moran left the game in the first inning with what looked like a hamstring or a groin injury. He walked off under his own power, but it was noticeable pain and a slow limp. I’ll post an update when the Pirates give one after he gets looked at. Todd Frazier replaced him at first base.
Colin Moran left the game with left groin discomfort, the Pirates announce.
