Pirates are looking for a sweep tonight!

Mitchell Boggs (RHP) (1-0, 3.50 ERA, 19 K) @ Jeff Karstens (RHP) (1-1, 5.19 ERA, 12 K)

7:05 P.M. EST @ PNC Park

Postgame Update:
No need for brooms. This game was all about missed opportunities for the Pirates. In the 1st, 3rd, and 5th innings, Nyjer Morgan and Freddy Sanchez both got on base (1st and 3rd with no outs, 5th with 1 out), and Nate McLouth couldn’t help more than a walk in the 5th, and those on-base efforts led to no runs. In the 4th inning, the Pirates got four consecutive hits, but they led to just one run because of a baserunning error by Robinzon Diaz.

The Pirates outhit the Cardinals 12-10, but the Bucs left 10 men on base. Final score: Cardinals 5 – Pirates 1.
