The Pirates took game one, 6-2, against the Mets Saturday afternoon and now look to go up two-games-to-one in the final series before the All-Star break.
Adam Frazier gets the matinee off, but Rodolfo Castro takes his place. Consider this a golden exchange.
Yes, you read that right. Newman is batting lead-off and Oliva, after striking gold with a base hit in game one, gets the start in right. Oh boy...
Max Kranick looks to stay perfect after his debut in St. Louis a few weeks ago. Hopefully, he won’t catch Nick Kingham Syndrome - excel in your first start and then taper off as a result of being bounced around the organization. We got your back, kid!
