Pirates (32-29) at Orioles (36-26) 7:05 PM EST–Camden Yards, Baltimore Here is the MLB.com Gameday TV: ROOT Sports The Pirates will look to avoid a sweep in Baltimore tonight. Lots of stuff happened today:
  • It looks like Charlie Morton will need Tommy John surgery.
  • Everyone’s favorite TV reporter Lacee Collins is no longer working for ROOT Sports.
  • Jeff Karstens will make a rehab start on Tuesday in Altoona.
  • The Pirates signed a bunch of draft picks, including their second choice (45th overall) Barrett Barnes from Texas Tech. Here’s the full rundown of picks that have and have not signed.
  • The Reds won again, completing a sweep of the Indians. That puts them 2.5 games ahead of the Bucs. On the bright side, they pounded Cleveland’s pitching and hopefully wore down the bullpen a bit for this coming weekend
Tonight’s starters… Erik Bedard (4-6, 3.59) vs. Tommy Hunter (2-3, 5.40) Bedard is no stranger to Baltimore. He pitched for the O’s for parts of five seasons, building his reputation as an injury-prone starter that can be excellent when healthy. Baltimore made a great move by flipping him to the Mariners for Adam Jones (and other prospects), who has become one of the top outfielders in all of baseball. Erik has faced his former team three times. He’s coming off a strong 7-inning effort Friday night against KC. Hunter hasn’t been all that good this season, but that didn’t stop Jake Arietta from throwing a gem last night. The good news here is that the Bucs are finally throwing one of their better pitchers at the O’s tonight (unlike Tuesday and Wednesday), so they should certainly have a shot to take advantage of a mediocre guy like Hunter and avoid a sweep.
