Pittsburgh Pirates star Ke’Bryan Hayes had an impressive series against the Cincinnati Reds. Pittsburgh had no problem taking care of the Reds in the three games, winning each game by three or more runs. And Hayes played a big part in helping the Pirates defeat the Reds. He went 7-for-14 at the plate with a home run and two RBI. This was the first time this season that he had a multi-hit performance in each game of the series.



Hayes was a problem at the plate and the Reds had no answer for him. In the first two games of the series, he finished with two hits and in the series finale he had a three-hit performance. It’s not everyday you see a player catch fire like that in a series. But that’s a taste of how talented Hayes is and how much of an impact he makes on the field.

After the Cincinnati series, Hayes was hitting .250 with seven home runs and 38 RBI on the season. A lot of eyes have been on Hayes, especially after he secured the bag at the beginning of the season.

But for the most part, Hayes has had a solid year in Pittsburgh. As the franchise surrounds him with more talent, we will see his game explode. He recently spent some time on the injured list. His health has been a problem during his first couple of years in the league as well. The Pirates placed him on the IL back on August 13th due to a mid-back muscle strain. Hayes missed a little over a week and returned to the lineup back on August 23rd.

“Any time you’re over there on the [injured list] and you’re watching your team go to battle each and every night, you want to be out there to try to help do your part to help get wins,” Hayes said in an article from mlb.com when he returned to the lineup. “So [I’m] just looking forward to being back and not trying to do too much, just try to be me, and hopefully I can help us get some wins.”

So far, Hayes is having a strong September, hitting over .300, and he’ll look to stay in his zone and finish the season strong and with optimism for a better 2023 for himself and his young team. The future is bright in Pittsburgh, especially with Hayes leading the way. He’s a bro that will continue to increase his stock throughout his career.
