Albert Pujols fans at PNC Park last night were chanting for him to take one last regular season at-bat, but those chants went unanswered.
Most of the regulars on Oli Marmol’s squad had a day off to prepare for postseason play that begins tomorrow afternoon.
The Pirates won last night’s game 5 to 3.
The Royals ended their season yesterday, losing to the Guardians 9 to 2.
That wasn’t all they lost as Manager Mike Metheny and pitching coach Cal Eldred were fired just hours after the game.
The Royals finished the season with a 65 and 97 record.
