The Bucs have been manhandled by the Reds so far this series, giving up 17 runs in two games, and they’ll trotting out Mitch Keller tonight. He of the above-7.00 ERA, so the Bucs will likely need to put some runs on the board tonight. That hasn’t been easy of late either. Pittsburgh has scored six total runs in their last three games. Let’s hope these things change this evening.

Let’s go Bucs!
