The Bucs are winding down the Spring Training schedule, as only six games remain (including tonight’s) before the regular season gets underway, and it’s been a nice little run here by the Pirates heading down the stretch, as they come into tonight winners of four straight, including a 6-5 victory over Baltimore last week.

Sean Poppen looks to keep up with the pretty good play of late by Pittsburgh’s arms, though the team currently has 22 pitchers left on the staff and will need to drop at least nine before the season starts. It’s Poppen’s chance to make a statement.

No TV for tonight’s game, but the Buccs will be on KDKA-AM and 100.1 FM, so you can catch the audio to get your Bucs fix.

Let’s make it five straight!
