The Pirates and Mets get things going tonight after last night’s contest was postponed due to weather, as two of the lowest-scoring offenses in the Majors go head to head. Pittsburgh starter JT Brubaker continues to struggle after a hot start, slipping all the way to 4-8 on the year, and the Bucs will be going against Taijuan Walker, who’s off to a fine start this season. This is the first of a four-game set that now features a double-header on Saturday.

Let’s go Bucs!
