Rick Porcello (RHP) (6-4, 3.98 ERA, 36 K) @ Ian Snell (RHP) (1-6, 5.54 ERA, 45 K)

7:05 P.M. EST @ PNC Park

With Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final tonight, this game is a bit of an afterthought. Hopefully the city of Pittsburgh can get 2 wins over the city of Detroit tonight.

Post Game Update
The only thing that mattered to most Pittsburgh fans tonight is that Lord Stanley came back home. The Pens shocked the Detroit Red Wings in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals to win their 3rd championship.

The Pirates’ game didn’t go as well. Ian Snell gave up 2 runs in 7 innings, and the offense could only muster 1 run on 8 hits.

Tiger pitcher, Rick Porcello went 2-3 with 2 RBI to earn his own win.

Whatever, the Pens won. That’s enough excitement to last me for awhile.
