Coming off the receiving end of a three-game sweep, courtesy of the Colorado Rockies, the Pirates welcome fans at 100 percent capacity tonight at PNC Park as they host interdivisional rival, Milwaukee Brewers.

Wil Crowe returns to the mound for the Bucs after (finally) earning his first Major League win last Friday against the St. Louis Cardinals. He had everything working for him that night, however, Mother Nature granted the city of Pittsburgh no grace, as heavy rainfall is in the forecast. He will need as much rosin and sweat as possible to keep a firm grip and keep his movement for tonight.

In lighter news, Adam Frazier, Ke’Bryan Hayes and Bryan Reynolds head tonight’s lineup, and if they can produce like they have, it should be a highly productive night of offense.

Earlier today, the Pirates placed first baseman Colin Moran on the 10-day injured list and recalled OF Jared Oliva from Triple-A Indianapolis. Oliva is not in the starting lineup tonight, as Shelton favored the likes of Ka’ai Tom over him... sigh.

Lastly, expect cheers around the middle innings as Adam Frazier led the voting for All-Star starters at second base before voting ended.
