Published

on

Welcome to the PBN Around the Horn. Here you’ll find news and notes from across Major League Baseball, your Pittsburgh Pirates, and around the Sports Now network.

After losing five straight in the city of Chicago, the Pirates (48-88) will try and salvage one game against the Chicago Cubs (62-75). To try and stop the bleeding, Wil Crowe (5.46 ERA) will face Zach Davies (4.91 ERA). The first pitch is scheduled for 2:20 p.m.

Weather: 79 degrees and sunny
TV/Radio: AT&T Sportsnet, 93.7 The Fan
Line: Pirates are +125 underdogs, O/U is 9.5 runs

UPDATE (11:52 a.m.)- The money line has stayed at +125 for Pittsburgh, and the O/U has bee determined to be 9.5 runs.

UPDATE (11:44 a.m.)- On this date 85 years ago, the world welcomed a future Pirates legend into the world! Bill Mazeroski will forever be in the annals of history after his walk-off home run in game seven of the 1960 World Series.

UPDATE (11:32 a.m.)- Both the Diamondbacks and Rangers lost last night, but the Orioles beat the Yankees so in terms of the 2022 MLB Draft standings, both the Pirates, Rangers, and Diamondbacks move up a game on the O’s. As it stands now the Pirates are 5.0 games back of the Orioles, 3.5 back of the Diamondbacks, and 0.5 games back of the Rangers.
