Don't lose this game, Pirates
The Pirates are up 4 runs before the Reds even come to bat. So listen to me Pirates and you listen good. If you have ANY hopes to go .500 (an Everest not scaled since 1992) then THESE are the games you can not blow.
You are going to lose close games. You are going to lose some blow outs.
But when you put a 4 spot on the board in the first, then you NEED to close out the game.
I expect the Pirates to be 7-8 by the end of today.
Then they would need to go 75-72 the rest of the way to have a winning season.
