Walker: ‘We’ve got to be better on the defensive side’

 

The Pirates have certainly picked up the pace recently, but if they want to reach their ultimate goal, Neil Walker knows they need to improve.

“We’ve got to be better on the defensive side,” Walker told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. “We’ve played pretty good, especially on the pitching and offensive side of things. We’re still working on the other areas.”

Through 48 games the Pirates have committed 32 errors, fifth in the National League.

While that isn’t terrible, it isn’t great either and it is definitely something the team plans to improve upon.
