The Pirates are hoping to take the last game of this series against the Cubs this afternoon at PNC Park, and today two pitchers that are fairly evenly matched will face off. Although at times it looked like batting practice in Tyler Anderson’s outing against the heavy-hitting Braves last Saturday, Anderson told the media that he gave a lot of credit to the Braves and felt like he’d pitched well despite his end line. Kyle Hendricks seems to struggle against the Bucs, so they’ve got that going for them, which is nice.

It’s lunchtime baseball, your game thread is open, and, as always, LET’S GO BUCS!
