It’s a NL Central Division matchup tonight as the Buccos head over the Cincinnati to take on the Red Machine, who are battling for success at 57-51. Pirates starter Wil Crowe is coming off of back-to-back strong outings and looks to keep it rolling tonight. Pittsburgh’s lineup looks a little different this evening, so we’ll see what, if anything, that does for the offense.

Let’s go Bucs!
