Root, root, root for the home team! Your Pittsburgh Pirates wrap up their series against the Milwaukee Boo Crew tonight at PNC Park. These are your keys to tonight's game. 1)With last night's 7-1 victory, the Pirates are now 77-55, 5 wins away from the magic number of 82. They can help get there tonight by serving up some home-cooked Meatloaf and take 2 outta 3 from Milwaukee. Serve up that Meatloaf with a big ol' side of Hit, Run, & Score! 2)The Pirates are a paltry 12-13 for the month of August. Help close out the month with a blast, beat the Boo Crew! 3)Tonight's starter, rookie RH Gerrit Cole, was given the luxury of some extra rest between starts. Cole is 6-6 with a 3.81 ERA for the season but on six-plus days rest, he's 4-0 with a 2.84 ERA. Let's see him get on track tonight. All aboard the Cole Train! Standings Watch: The Pirates won and Cincy defeated St Louie last night. That puts the Bucs .5 games behind St Louie for the NL Central lead. Cincy is 3.5 games out of first. Don't look ahead to this weekend's series. Get by Milwaukee first. Let's Go Bucs!!!!!
