A new day has dawned in the desert, and the Pirates look to get at least one game off the “At Least We’re Not as Bad as the” Diamondbacks this afternoon in the air-conditioned confines of Chase Field. Let’s hope starter Max Krammit Kranick repeats his maiden performance and not his last one against the Mets. As for the D-Backs, it might be a lessened Madison Bumgarner taking the mound, but it’s still MadBum.

It’s the end of the workday, so kick back and enjoy. The game thread is open; as usual, I’ll be going between here and Twitter, and, as always, LET’S GO BUCS!! ‍☠️ ‍☠️ ‍☠️
