Pirates (15-11) at Brewers (13-11) 8:10 PM–Miller Park, Milwaukee MLB.com Gameday TV: ROOT The Bucs will look to get rid of the Miller Park demons tonight as they take on the Brewers in game two of this series. The recent trend for the Pirates has been losing the first game of a series and coming back to win it, so hopefully that continues. I think even one win in the next two games here would be big for the team’s confidence…they need to stop getting blown out of Milwaukee every single time. News: Jonathan Sanchez was DFA’d, finally. The end of an era. Bryan Morris replaces him on the roster. Jose Contreras will be up by Friday, meaning Morris will probably go right back to Indy. Jeanmar Gomez will start tomorrow. Neil Walker is still out tonight but is apparently improving. Travis Snider is out as well but is available to pinch hit. Tonight’s starters… James McDonald (2-2, 4.38) vs. Marco Estrada (2-1, 3.86) As usual, the question is….which one will we get, good JMac or bad JMac? Considering where the game is being played, my money is on bad JMac tonight, but he never fails to confuse and bewilder us. James looked very good early on in his last start but had to come out early in the sixth once the Phillies figured him out a bit. Estrada seems to always pitch well against the Pirates and has been solid this year so far for the Brew Crew. Miller Park is a good place to hit (even for the Pirates – the problem is usually pitching) so hopefully the Bucs can get on track against him tonight. Bucs vs. Estrada Brewers vs. JMac LINEUP Here’s the #Pirates lineup for tonight’s 8:10ET game in Milwaukee. #LetsGoBucs twitter.com/Pirates/status… — Pittsburgh Pirates (@Pirates) April 30, 2013
