The 2015 Steelers open training camp this weekend. Here's what we're wondering as the Black & Gold invade Latrobe.

What a summer it's been for Ryan Thompson. 

The Pirates acquired Joe Blanton early Thursday morning from the Kansas City Royals for cash considerations.

Kang, who homered in the ninth inning Tuesday night to give the Pirates an 8-7 victory after reliever Tony Watson blew a four-run lead, picked up right where he left off.

Kang's homer, a 414-foot shot off All-Star closer Glen Perkins (0-3) that bounced off the second deck in left center-field, sent Pittsburgh to its fourth win five games.

The Penguins also acquired a second-round draft pick in the trade and sent a third-round pick to the Canucks.

This time it was Harrisburg who pulled off the remarkable comeback — to stun the Riverhounds, 4-3 on Sunday.
