Another Sunday afternoon, another series in which the Pirates have taken the first two games, another game that’s really not going to be watched due to the Steelers’ home opener being on at the same time. Maybe that will take the pressure off. We can only hope.

Two notable changes—Max Krammit Kranick is starting today, having been called up from Indianapolis since last night’s starter Bryse Wilson went on the 10-day IL. Also, Bryan Reynolds, whose bat has been ice-cold as of late, is sitting this one out, with Ben Gamel taking over in center.

The game thread is open, I’ll be doing my usual thing here and on Twitter, and, as always, LET’S GO BUCS!!
