Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Atlanta Braves – Game 19

Nice series victory against the Colorado Rockies.

Tons of positives in this series.  Clint Barmes, Pedro Alvarez, Garrett Jones, James McDonald and Charlie Morton all had really good outings.

25- 30 homers for Pedro is a definite possibility if he gets regular playing time.

I really dislike four game sets.  Especially on the road.  It just always seems like you’re looking to split.  When you go 2-2 it just seems like you aren’t making any progress.  The Pirates played four games on the road against the Braves last year as well.  They won two of them, but lost every other game they played against the Braves to go 2-4.  Every game was pretty close with just one game being decided by more than two runs-and the Pirates won that one.

Pretty good matchup too.  You might want to watch this one.  Stay up until it’s over, Jerry Meals says its safe.

First Pitch:  7:35 PM EST

Where  To Watch:  Root Sports, MLB.TV, PTV, FSS

Tommy Hanson is coming off his third straight season with an ERA in the 3s or better, all with the Braves.  He appears to be well on his way to another thus far in 2012.
