First number, last word

11: Stolen bases by the Pirates in the first seven spring games, after swipes Tuesday by Quincy Latimore and Hansen.

"I don't get caught up in the record. I wasn't even sure of how many games we've played. I just love the way we're playing, the way we're going about our work -- extra hard. The focus has been really, really good."
-- Hurdle, on the Pirates improving their Grapefruit League record to 5-1-1 with Tuesday's 5-2 victory over the Tigers.
