Make baseball fun again! Our Pittsburgh Pirates take their show on the road tonight to open a 3-game series that starts the 2nd half in Washington DC to battle the Nationals. These are your keys for tonight's game. 1)Pirates LH Francisco Liriano, 5-8, 5.15 ERA faces Nats RH Stephen Strasburg, 12-0, 2.62 ERA. Strasburg is due to lose. Why not tonight? Give him L, Frankie! 2)When facing a pitcher of Strasburg's caliber, it's best to get to him quickly. Hit him early, hit him often, hit him HARD! 3)Before the All-Star break, the Bucs were on an 8-2 run. Keep finding the win column and raising the Jolly Roger! Let's Go Bucs!!!!!
