     Let's play two! Our Pittsburgh Pirates wrap up their series with the San Diego Padres this afternoon at PNC Park. These are your keys for today's game. 1)Following last night's 4-0 flop to San Diego, the Pirates try to make meatloaf of San Diego this afternoon. It beats goose eggs and fish tacos. 2 outta 3 ain't bad! 2)Mrs. Black-N-Gold labeled last night's latest loss a "flop". They were 2-hit on the way to the loss column to a last place team. This team seems to be lacking something this season. Remember the last few years when no lead was insurmountable? Not this team. Not this year. They lack drive and desire. To paraphrase the great American poet James Morrison: Come on baby, light that fire! 3)LH Christian Friedrich, 4-7, 4.76 ERA starts for San Diego. The Buccos counter with RH Jameson Taillon, 2-2, 3.29 ERA. Jamo looks like he's got the goods and he's a keeper. Unfortunately, Friedrich looks like the type of ham-and-egger that constantly confounds the Pirates, much like last night's winner, Edwin Jackson. What's the best why to make that mealoaf? We need a big helping of Hit, Run & Score! Let's Go Bucs!!!!!
