That was a quick two months.

Since we’ll undoubtedly be spending the next four months overanalyzing things, we’ll keep it simple for this, the last game of the oddity known as the 2020 Pirates season. Much as it started, it will end with the Bucs taking on the Indians at Progressive Field. Yes, we know the first games were exhibitions, just go with it. The last first pitch will be thrown at 3:10 p.m. and broadcast on AT&T SportsNet Pittsburgh and KDKA-FM.

JT Brubaker (1-3, 4.46 ERA, 45 K) will be on the mound for the Pirates in his ninth start, while Cal Quantrill (2-0, 2.17 ERA, 29K) makes his second start for the Tribe.

Here are your lineups, and, for the final time in 2020, LET’S GO BUCS!
