For the first time in the 2020 season the Pittsburgh Pirates have won a series! Now, let’s dish out some grades for their series victory over the Milwaukee Brewers

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, children of all ages, the Pittsburgh Pirates have done it. For the first time in 2020, the Pittsburgh Baseball Club has captured a series victory! Best of all, it came against one of their most disliked rivals – the Milwaukee Brewers.

Powered by their best offensive series of the season, the Pittsburgh Pirates took care of the Milwaukee Brewers over the weekend at the PNC Park. Following a weekend sweep of their rival Brewers, the Pirates are now 7-17 on the season.

As we have done throughout the season, and will continue to do, we will hand out grades for the Pirates from their series against the Brewers. Series victory that is! As always, we will grade out the performance of the starting rotation, bullpen and offense for the Pittsburgh Pirates in the series. We will begin with the starting rotation.
