The afternoon series finale

The Pirates and Mets finish up at PNC Park this afternoon with a 12:35 tilt that will pit Charlie Morton against Jon Niese. Morton, of course, has had trouble with his sinker this year and has pitched pretty poorly in the month of May. He’ll continue his quest to straighten himself out against Niese, who’s also having a fairly awful month. Niese gets a bonus this afternoon, though, as he faces a Pirate lineup that includes Yamaico Navarro and Gorkys Hernandez and Clint Barmes.

Fire up the radios, and know that if you get frustrated enough to punch a hole in your wall that you’ve packed more power into that punch than this Pirate lineup is capable of mustering.

About Pat Lackey

In 2005, I started a WHYGAVS instead of working on organic chemistry homework. Many years later, I've written about baseball and the Pirates for a number of sites all across the internet, but WHYGAVS is still my home. I still haven't finished that O-Chem homework, though.
