Brewers - Pirates Series Preview: The Quick and Dirty

New, comments

In the last couple years, the Pittsburgh Pirates have been the Dr. Feelbetter Cure-All Elixir for the Milwaukee Brewers.  Having just been dumptrucked by the San Francisco Giants, though, I'm not confident that's going to be the case this time around.

2010 vs. Pirates: 5-3, 69 runs scored, 29 runs allowed

Current three-game series:

  • Friday, July 9, 2010 @ 7:10 p.m. CDT. TV: FS Wisconsin  Radio: 620 WTMJ
  • Saturday, July 10, 2010 @ 6:10 p.m. CDT. TV: FS Wisconsin  Radio: 620 WTMJ
