Nothing's gonna turn us back now; straight ahead and on the track now! Our Pittsburgh Pirates wrap up the series in Milwaukee this afternoon against the Brewers. These are your keys for today's game. 1)Don't look now but this ship is sinking like a stone, again. The Pirates have dropped 2 straight following last night's 5-3 loss. You can talk about jinxes and House of Horrors all you want. The bottom line is the Buccos ran themselves right out of last night's game and straight into the loss column. Contending teams don't continuously make mistake after mistake on the basepaths the way this team does. Run into a win! 2)The Pirates have only managed to score 4 runs in the first 2 games of this series. Mrs. Black-N-Gold will break it down nice and easy for your, once again. Hit. Run. Score! 3)Yes, we're all a little bummed that GM Neal Huntington traded away closer Mark Melancon yesterday to the Nats. And while Mrs. Black-N-Gold wishes NH got a better/bigger return on the deal, it's not the end of the world as we know it. And the youngsters, Brault and Taillon, turned in some decent starts in the first 2 games. So try to salvage a win today and we'll see how our revamped bullpen plays. You got to know when to hold 'em! Good thing Mrs. Black-N-Gold is going with a Pirates beer mug theme this weekend, 'cause boy this team makes me drink. Let's Go Bucs!!!!!
