Pirates Set to Hand Ninth Straight Loss to Brewers

The Milwaukee Brewers head into PNC with a little less swagger tonight.  The Pittsburgh Pirates will be looking for the third straight victory over the Beer makers.   Fans are calling for Pittsburgh boy Ken Macha’s head after the Brewers clutched defeat from the jaws of victory by letting Trevor Hoffman take the mound last night.  I guess beer doesn’t cure everything after all.

The Bucs have won three games in the past nine, but none was bigger than last night against Roy Halladay. Or as we call him Hallady.  Wow.  The team pulled off a tough test.  Tonight shouldn’t be even close to being that tough on paper.

However……33-year-old Randy Wolf is on the mound.  He has been dominant against the Buccos.  He is 1-0 in two starts versus them this year.

The Pirates watched as he fired six shutout innings in a victory at Pittsburgh on April 22.  Cy Young like.

Then less than a week later he gave up just two runs in eight innings.
