Pirates showing resiliency, if not consistency

ST. LOUIS -- The Pirates have followed the win-one, lose-one trend in each of their last 12 games heading into play Wednesday.

Second baseman Neil Walker sees that as a positive situation.

"I think it says that we're a pretty resilient team and that's a good character trait to have," Walker noted. "Bouncing back after a loss, especially on the road, is something that you have to do to get where we need to be."

The fight-back string began after a loss to St. Louis prior to consecutive wins in Arizona on April 17-18.

"If you look for good, you find good, if you look for bad, you find bad," manager Clint Hurdle said. "The guys are looking for good. We'd like to put together a complete package where we run off some wins in a row."

The Pirates are 8-7 after a 2-6 start which included a five-game losing streak. They have yet to win three in a row and have just a pair of two-game winning streaks.

"When we lose, we're just hungry to come back and win as soon as we can," outfielder Jose Tabata said.
