The Pirates are 12-12, but they have a tough road ahead. Their next 10 are against the Brewers, Cardinals, and Mets.

The Brewers put their 15 game winning streak against the Bucs on the line tonight.

It should be a good pitchers’ duel with Yovani Gallardo @ Paul Maholm, 7:05 P.M. at PNC Park.

Ryan Braun will not be playing tonight because he will be having an MRI on his back.

Last week, Jeff Karstens hit Braun in the back with a pitch. Braun thought it was an intentional beaning, and Karstens was fined by MLB for the pitch. Karstens has appealed.

Today, John Russell said, “We haven’t thought about it. Obviously they said a few things about it. Our guy got fined. They hit three guys the next day. So I wouldn’t think there’s anything on their side. We obviously don’t want to make a big issue of it. We just want to go out and play baseball. I would think it should be over.”
