Pirates (15-10) at Brewers (12-11) 8:10 PM–Miller Park, Milwaukee MLB.com Gameday TV: ROOT The Bucs are off to the House of Horrors this week as they look to finish strong in what has been an excellent road trip so far. It won’t be easy – it never is for the Pirates in Milwaukee. They did win a series there last year when everything was going well in June, so it CAN happen. Still, the Brewers took 2 of 3 the next time the Bucs visited Miller Park, and then they tortured the Pirates in Milwaukee and Pittsburgh during The Collapse. The Brew Crew has been a strange team so far this year. They got off to a horrid start, then ripped off an impressive nine game winning streak. Aramis Ramirez and Corey Hart are both hurt, hampering the offense quite a bit. The Pirates have scored more runs (98) than the Brewers (96) and the Crew has allowed the most runs in the division (101). They’re hanging around .500 at the moment, which has them in fourth place in the Central. Tonight’s starters… Wandy Rodriguez (2-0, 1.66) vs. Yovanni Gallardo (2-1, 4.97) Wandy is coming off his worst start, which skyrocketed his ERA all the way up to 1.66. The horror! He’s been excellent, but will look to get back on track and go deeper into the game today (last start lasted just 5.2 innings). Even after a good start from Jeff Locke yesterday, the Bucs still need the rotation to continue to ease up on the bullpen’s workload. Gallardo has been a mainstay in the Brewer rotation and entered the year as the ace now that Zack Greinke is gone, but he has had some problems so far this year. His last two outings have been better, but he walked five batters in his previous start. He was also charged with DUI a couple weeks ago, but that hasn’t kept him off the field. Bucs vs. Gallardo Brewers vs. Wandy LINEUP Here is the Pirates lineup for tonight in Milwaukee with first pitch scheduled for 8:10ET. #LetsGoBucs twitter.com/Pirates/status… — Pittsburgh Pirates (@Pirates) April 29, 2013
