MIAMI — A few final notes from the 2010 season …

»»» Garrett Jones appeared in 158 games, the most by a Pirate since Jason Bay played in 159 games in 2006. The team record is 163, set in 1967 by Bill Mazeroski and in 1989 by Bobby Bonilla.

»»» Jose Tabata and Neil Walker failed in their bid to finish as the first set of Pirates rookies with .300-plus batting averages in 111 years. Tabata (.299) went 0 for 4 and Walker (.296) went 0 for 3 with a walk.

»»» Ronny Cedeno ended the season riding a seven-game hitting streak. During the stretch, he batted .400 (10 for 25) with two doubles, two homers, four RBI and three runs scored.

Cedeno accidentally wore a Spanish-language jersey — it had “Piratas” across the front — at the start of the game. After homering in the second inning, he changed into the usual road gray “Pittsburgh” jersey the rest of the team was wearing.
