Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Cincinnati Reds – Game 159

The Pirates are going to take this freaking series aren’t they?

Okay, this one is going to be tough.

First Pitch:  1:35 PM EST

Where To Watch:  Root Sports, MLB.TV, FS-O

Johnny Cueto, RHP (26)

Amazing that this guy didn’t make the All Star (joke) Team. He will probably be the second pitcher this year to get their 20th win against the Pirates.

Your time might better be invested watching football today.

Cueto loves pitching against the Bucs.

Wandy Rodriguez, LHP (33)

Last one for Wandy. Hopefully he can at least keep his winning record as a Pirate intact.

He has been pretty good against the Reds as a Pirate, but overall this season he hasn’t been so good.
