Pirates use big inning to put a Labor Day hurt on Tigers

"It's just something you've got to deal with," shortstop Niko Goodrum said. "That's why we went through the vaccination process so we don't have to lose too many guys to contact tracing. It's just stuff you have to deal with, stuff that's going on in the world and just move forward.
