I think a few runs will be scored tonight.
The pitching matchup is Dave Bush and Tom Gorzelanny. You may be shocked to learn that Gorzellany is one of the few starters in the majors who have been in a rotation most of the season and has an ERA higher than Bush's. Maybe tonight will be the night that Bush gets under six, and Gorzo heads over seven.
I'm just wondering, if the Brewers win this game and sweep the series, after winning 10 out of 16 from the Pirates last year, can we finally put the "the Pirates always play us hard / it's tough to win in Pittsburgh" cliche to rest?
Here's the BR Game Preview. It's kind of a shame that we missed Zach Duke this time around--four of our starters have 1.000+ OPSs against him.
Game time is 6:05 CT.
