  • Thursday, August 12th, your Pittsburgh Pirates wrap up a three-game series against the St. Louis Cardinals. The Pirates (41-73) will send out J.T Brubaker. The Cardinals (57-56) will send out Wade LeBlanc. The Pirates are looking to avoid the sweep before they hit the road and head to the cheese state, Wisconsin, and face off against the Brewers. First pitch is at 12:35, and you can either listen to the game on 93.7 The Fan or watch it on AT&T Sportsnet. 
  • The Cardinals have to be licking their chops against Brubaker. In 18.2 innings pitched, Brubaker has allowed 24 hits, 11 earned runs, 4 HR’s, and a WHIP of 1.554. There are two other teams that match a similar line, and those are the Reds and Brewers. 
  • If you followed my advice on going with the over/under line last game, all I have to say is… OUCH, my bad. The Pirates are +115 underdogs with an O/U of 9 yet again. I’ll refrain from any betting advice (nervous laughter)
  • It should be a hot 88 degrees and partly cloudy at first pitch. We should have rain-free weather the entire game. There is no chance of rain until 6 PM.
