Pittsburgh vs. Cincinnati Reds, 18 August 2006

7:10 PM

FSNP, KDKA

Ian Snell (10-8, 4.67)  vs. Chris Michalak (1-0, 1.35)

After a day off to recover from two straight losses to the Brewers, the Pirates will begin a series with the Reds today.

Cincinnati hopes that the Pirates will lay down so that the Reds can steal the division away from the Cards.  

For their part, the Bucs will aim to give Chris Michalak an ERA that actually reflects his skill. And I'll give you a clue; that number is just a little higher than 1.35.

While Ian Snell pitched well in his last outing, he has to be worried about pitching to the HR-Happy Reds at home...
