The Pirates hope to eke one out, as opposed to eeking as they’ve done lately, this afternoon against the Reds in the final game of this series. Bryse Wilson makes his second start as a Bucco, and other than Jacob Stallings catching Derek Shelton has left his lineup mostly unchanged, with Hoy Park, Ke’Bryan Hayes and Bryan Reynolds as the first three in the battery. Sooner or later, something has to stick, right?

It’s a summer Sunday afternoon, let’s try to enjoy it. The game thread is open, I’ll be up to my usual hijinks here and on Twitter, and, as always, LET’S GO BUCS!!
