Erik Bedard will take the mound tonight in hopes of finally getting enough offense to win a game. He’s currently 0-4 despite a 2.64 ERA. It’s hard to see any reason why things might change tonight, though I suppose facing Randall Delgado could give the Pirates some hope since his control has been pretty spotty and he’s had some rough starts this year.
I’ll be out in Durham tonight to get a look at Starling Marte since Indianapolis is in town. That game starts at 5:05, so I’ll probably be able to catch the end of the Pirates game, should the Pirates decide to make it worth my time. The Pirates and Braves start at 7:10 tonight.
