Blogging the Pirates and the Steelers since 1904.
Burnett and Nicasio at eight.
Rox start the game with the oxygen masks in the dugout, the better to recover from all that running the bases.
Meanwhile the over/under on first-inning errors behind Burnett is 1 1/2.
Liriano and Wild Jorge tonight at 8:40. Bucs are four games up.
Fernandez and Cole just underway as the PBC goes for the sweep.
Tom Koehler and Charlie Morton tonight. Win meter humming loudly and emitting brilliant green hue.
Henderson Alvarez and Jeff Locke at seven. The first place Bucs are 2 games up, with the Cards bunting on the door.
Bucs are off today, and will spend their free time practicing how to safely uncork a champagne bottle. Cards host the first-place Dodgers tonight.
Nicasio and Burnett starting soon. The starting eight will try to forget about all of those shaving cream pies to the face long enough to score a second or third RUN.
