Firecracker, firecracker, boom, boom, boom! Our Pittsburgh Pirates look to start some fireworks with their NL Central rivals, the St Louie Cardinals, today when they open a 4-game series. These are your keys for today's game. 1)The Bucs broke out the bats and the brooms yesterday en route to the sweep of Oakland with a 6-3 win. They've won 7 of 9 and 4 in a row. Keep the streak alive with win #5! 2)The Buccos have scored 26 runs during their winning streak There's always room for more Hit, Run, & Score! 3)Pirates LH Jon Niese, 6-6, 5.07 ERA will face St Louie RH Carlos Martinez, 7-5, 2.83 ERA. Niese is another pitcher that needs to right the ship or he's sunk. A win for Niese would be nice! Let's Go Bucs!!!!!
