Ohlendorf Vows to Continue Hard Work


Price, Karen, Tribune-Review/Pittsburgh Tribune-Review


If Saturday's start does turn out to be Ross Ohlendorf's final one of the season, as is expected, he will head into the offseason pleased with his progress since the All-Star break.

He won't, however, take anything for granted despite his strong showing in the second half of the year.

Injuries piling up

Garrett Jones did not play yesterday because of a sore right shoulder resulting from a diving play at first base in Friday night's win. Russell said he hoped to have him back for today's game. …
