Pirates (37-25) at Cubs (24-35) 2:20 PM–Wrigley Field, Chicago MLB.com Gameday TV: ROOT, WGN The Bucs look to break out the brooms for the second straight series against the Cubs, which would complete a very nice bounce-back from the sweep in Atlanta. It would also give them some huge momentum going in to an exciting homestand. Today’s starters… Jeff Locke (5-1, 2.45) vs. Edwin Jackson (1-8, 6.29) I thought Locke pitched a lot better than his line in his last start…although the reverse has probably been true for him a couple of times this year as well. The lefty is still throwing the ball quite well and is even increasing his strikeout totals, which is a key to sustaining his success. Jackson has continued to a be a total mess for the Cubs after signing a big deal this winter. Can you imagine if the Pirates had wound up with him instead of AJ Burnett, as they originally intended? Pirates vs. Jackson Cubs vs. Locke Here’s the #Pirates lineup for today’s game at Wrigley.#LetsGoBucs twitter.com/Pirates/status… — Pittsburgh Pirates (@Pirates) June 9, 2013
