The Buccos are coming off of a tough extra innings loss to the Cincinnati Reds and now have to look to bounce back against one of baseball’s top teams. The offense is still in a funk and we don’t exactly have the recipe going to break out of the team-wide hitting slump, but this is why they play the games. The Pirates seem to have a decent night hitting every couple days or so, so maybe they are due.

It is, however, an absolutely gorgeous evening for baseball in the ‘Burgh. I spent most of the afternoon with my daughter at the zoo in Highland Park, and it’s as nice now as it’s been at any point today.

Let’s go Bucs!
