After last night’s big extra innings win, the Buccos have one of their top pitchers going in an effort to start a win streak. The Braves have one of their best hurlers going also, so expect another close contest.

Don’t forget to check out Brett’s piece from today before the game. He absolutely crushed it. Hopefully, the Pirates do too.

Let’s go Bucs!
