Pirates starter Trevor Cahill is coming off of his best start of the season, so hopefully he can keep it rolling tonight. The Bucs are likely to need good pitching, as their anemic offense is taking on Cardinals ace Jack Flaherty, who could become the first St. Louis pitcher since Bob Gibson to win eight of their first nine starts. Pretty good company.

We have a 7:45 start tonight. Let’s go Bucs!
