7:05 P.M. EST @ PNC Park

Jeff Karstens had a great night tonight (7IP, 6H, 2ER, 1BB, 4K).

Up 7-2 in the ninth, Gorzo and Capps made things a little scary in the 9th when they combined for: Ground Out, Fly Out, Walk, Double, Walk, (Pitcher Change), Hit By Pitch, Walk, Ground Out.

PNC Park was sold out tonight for SkyBlast with Zac Brown Band! My sister was there, and she said it was amazing!

The Pirates look for a series win against the Astros tomorrow.
