The Pittsburgh Pirates played an absolute stinker of a series against the Brewers as Miller Park continued to be a House of Horrors for the Buccos, but there is no time to dwell on that series as the Pirates must turn their focus on the NL Central leading Cardinals for THE BIGGEST SERIES OF THE SEASON.

The Pirates face an unbelievably uphill battle to win the division, but if they have any hopes left they needed to win this series. The Pirates haven’t win a single road series against an NL Central opponent in 2015, so the odds were against the Battlin Buccos, but adversity is how you build character and it seems like in 2015, the Pirates always respond well to having their backs against the wall.

So were the Pirates able to keep their NL Central title hopes alive for at least another series? Lets see what HAPPened in game one.
