With Erik Bedard out until at least Wednesday with his back spasms, Brad Lincoln will get a spot start for the Pirates in Miami tonight.

The whole homestand comes down to this

The Pirates are 4-4 over the first eight games of their nine-game homestand, so the final result of the homestand lies on this afternoon's game against the Astros. It'll be AJ Burnett that gets the start today to try and get the win for the series and the homestand, going up against Wandy Rodriguez.

Game 34: Pirates 3 Astros 2

It's always amazing to me how quickly an exciting ending wipes away everything frustrating about a baseball game. After Neil Walker and Andrew McCutchen hit back-to-back doubles in the first inning to put the Pirates ahead 1-0, Wandy Rodriguez faced the minimum number of hitters in the second through eighth innings. That resulted in a 2-1 Astros lead going into the bottom of...
