In Heaven there is no beer, that's why we drink it here! Your Pittsburgh Pirates continue their series against the Milwaukee Brewers at PNC Park tonight. These are your keys for tonight's game. 1)The Pirates look to recover and find the win column following last night's 13-inning 6-4 loss. Right the ship and raise the Jolly Roger! 2)The Brewers have beaten the Bucs in 7 straight. #8 would not be great. Hit, Run, & Score! 3)Milwaukee has RH Jimmy Nelson, 11-11, 3.86 ERA on the mound. The Buccos put RH Charlie Morton, 8-7, 4.07 ERA on the bump. The season Nelson is 4-1 with a 1.72 ERA vs the Bucs. Charlie is 5-2 with a 3.00 ERA at home this year. Something's got to give. The Pirates blew a golden opportunity last night as Cincy slammed St Louie 11-0 and the Cubs were postponed. With 23 games to go, the Black-N-Gold are 4.5 games out in the NL Central. They still hold the top Wild Card spot with just a 2.5 game lead over Chicago. Don't look ahead to the Cubs visit, watch out for the trap with these Brewers. You gotta win to get in! Let's Go Bucs!!!!!
