Rookie's perfect debut
MLB weekend winners and losers: Rookie's perfect debut; fireworks from Ohtani, Tatis; Yankees swept at Fenway ⚾
A Pirates rookie had his perfect debut cut short, and baseball's two most exciting players kept on performing.
Pirates rookie Max Kranick debuted on Sunday against the Cardinals and did not allow a baserunner in his five flawless frames. The right-hander needed just 50 pitches to get through those innings before the game was delayed by rain and ended Kranick's afternoon. The Cardinals broke up the perfect game in the seventh inning, but Kranick should get his chance to stick in the rotation and attempt to continue his big-league perfection after the way he pitched.
