Home opening Thursday for the pirates. The crowd is capped at 25 percent, so hey, things are basically back to normal at PNC Park.
Cubs are here and Jake Arrieta is about to start. Pirates scored six hits in six innings ahead of Arrieta at Wrigley on Saturday but suffered a single loss. Arrieta is an inconsistent 22-23 for the past three years. Tyler Anderson took the loss Saturday. He threw himself well, knocking out seven in five pics, but made a mistake and Kris Bryant dropped it over the ivy.
Anderson went 4-3 last year, supported by an inferior lineup. Cashed in against the pirates on Wednesday, but will support them for 10 units on Thursday.
They should all be that simple. The Reds beat the Pirates 11-4, a five-run first inning that set the tone. Cincinnati, with four homers, made it easy for Luis Castillo to recover from his opening day disaster. He knocked out the Bucs and went strong seven times for the W. The Reds improved to 5-1 and we won three of our last four (the Mets roughly interrupted our streak). Down-275 performances.
