Play ball! Our Pittsburgh Pirates continue their series in the nation's capital tonight when they battle the Washington Nationals. These are your keys for tonight's game. 1)The Pirates didn't start off the 2nd half in the win column, losing last night's opener 5-1. They only managed 1 run on 4 hits. We gotta have more Hit, Run, & Score! 2)With that loss, the Bucs have dropped 2 straight. #3 ain't for me! 3)We see the return of Buccos RH Gerrit Cole, 5-4, 2.77 ERA, tonight. He'll square off against Nats RH Tanner Roark, 8-5, 3.01 ERA. This will be Cole's 1st start since a stint on the DL before the All-Star break. All aboard the Cole Train for a win! Let's Go Bucs!!!!!
