Ian Snell (RHP) (1-5, 4.93 ERA, 30 K) @ Craig Stammen (RHP) (0-0, -.– ERA, 0 K)

7:05 P.M. EST @ Nationals Park

Post Game Update
The Nationals finally found a way to hit Tom Gorzelanny, and they avoided a series sweep at the hands of the Pirates. The Pirate offense struggled, only producing 5 hits.

John Russell continues to make the interesting move of subbing out Andy LaRoche late in close games although the third-baseman’s hitting has greatly improved from the beginning of the season.

The Pirates travel to Chicago for series’ with the White Sox and Cubs.

Go Bucs!
