First Trip to PNC Park

Goal #1 on the day: Two hits

Well, getting one-hit by Johnny Cueto was not the best way to get this series started. The good news, of course, is that it's just one game and that the Reds are sending Mike Leake out to the mound tonight. Leake's ERA is decent this year (3.02), but the peripherals suggest that he's still Mike Leake. Francisco Liriano looks to bounce back from his rough start against...

The mean streets of the NLC

Their .611 winning percentage would be enough to lead the NLE and the NLW, but here in the NLC, they’re a sad third place. They can’t all three keep this up, can they? Surely someone’s got to crack. At the time of this writing, after the Pirates won, but...
