I'd be safe and warm, if I was in LA! Your Pittsburgh Pirates close out their series in Los Angeles this afternoon as they battle the Codgers. These are your keys for today's game. 1)The Buccos found the win column last night, 3-2. That win, coupled with the Cubs victory over the Cards puts the Pirates 4 games back of St Louie with 14 to play. The Cubs are just 1 out for the top Wild Card. Keep finding that win column. Raise the Jolly Roger! 2)The Bucs have a chance to make some Meatloaf today, LA-style. Mrs. Black-N-Gold is guessing the recipe would call for tofu and avocado. Don't forget a dash of Hit, Run, & Score! 3)The Pirates will start RH Gerrit Cole, 16-8, 2.60 ERA. He'll face LA RH Mike Bolsinger, 6-3, 3.13 ERA. For his career, Cole is 2-0 with a 4.50 ERA vs LA. His career September numbers are 9-2 with a 3.05 ERA. Make it a September to remember. All aboard the Cole Train for a win! Let's Go Bucs!!!!!
