It’s a long flight from Pittsburgh to San Diego, especially when you’re coming off of a three-game sweep like our Buccos. Tyler Anderson, one of Pittsburgh’s most effective starters, will look to break a four-game losing streak and get our formally over-.500 Bucs back into the win column. But it will be a tough match against one of baseball’s better clubs.

Make sure you check out Brett’s piece from earlier today before the game and catch a listen to Nathan’s podcast this week. All worth your time, especially if you’re staying up late for the game and the fam is in bed.

Let’s go Bucs!
