The Pirates don’t play on the 4th, but have a chance to celebrate early by taking three out of four from the Brewers today.
Pirates have won two games so far, with a forgettable game sandwiched in between.
It’s actually kind of upsetting no one hit three homers in one game over last two days. As we’ve started to become accustomed to.
Feels weird to say, that now we have some expectations of a home run being hit. There’s some excitement of thump, that hasn’t existed in roughly a decade. Like when Cutch and El Toro were battling it out for the team lead in 2012 (Cutch edged the bull by one: 31 to 30).
BREWERS @ PIRATES
Time: 1:35 PM EST
Pirates Starter: Zach Thompson, (3-5, 4.47)
Brewers Starter: Brandon Woodruff, (6-3, 4.44)
Thompson notes: Pirates leader in wins, among starters, returns from the IL after a stretch of seven starts where he carried a 2.91 ERA. He faces off against Woodruff, who is having somewhat of a down year. Currently his GB% (37.7%) is the worst of his career, a career worst LOB% (64.3%), and a career worst HR/9 (1.29). And as noted, the Pirates hit a bunch of homers now.
