-- It had to feel good to get in there and get a couple of hits?

To here the rest of George Von Benko's interview with Pirates' outfielder Brad Eldred. Listen to Audio
Brad Eldred, who missed most of last season after left thumb surgery, hit .303 with six home runs and 13 RBIs in 66 at-bats this spring and made the Pirates roster. He got his first start of the season in right field on Sunday, and responded with a home run and a double with two RBI. PiratesDugout.com's George Von Benko spoke with Eldred recently.
