Hey batter, batter, batter, batter! Our Pittsburgh Pirates close out the first half of their season today with a matinee versus the Chicago Cubs at PNC Park. These are your keys for today's game. 1)The Pirates go for 3 in a row against Chicago following last night's 12-6 win. The victory was powered by 4 home runs from CF Andrew McCutchen (could the giant finally be awakening from his slumber?) SS Jordy Mercer, RF Sean Rodriguez, and 1B Josh Bell. The Bell tolled with his 1st career granny. Chicks dig the long ball! 2)Some house cleaning is the order of the day as the Bucs go for the sweep. Break out the brooms! 3)During the 1st 2 games of this series, the Buccos have scored 20 runs. There's always room for more Hit, Run, & Score! Let's Go Bucs!!!!!
