Hello everyone! I have some MLB news for you today. I know, I know. I know if you look at Pittsburgh’s record you’ll be like, “they’re done,” but lets not give up on the Pirates just yet.

But more importantly, lets hope the Pirates don’t give up on themselves.

The All-Star break is coming up soon (17 games). So far, the Pirates played 64 games, and they’re 23-41. After their series with the Brewers, they’re now 14.5 games out of first place.

I’m going to give the Pirates a little credit though because Milwaukee is the number team in the NL Central. They are the team to beat, and the Pirates could’ve pulled it off twice, but as they say, that’s water under the bridge.

I know baseball has a long season, and we can’t live and die with every game, but if the Pirates can focus on one series at a time, they’ll be okay. That should be the game plan; win 2 out of 3.

What better time to start than a 3-game series coming up with the Washington Nationals? The Nationals are in last place in the NL east. After the Nationals they have the Indians. The Indians are a good team, but if Pittsburgh gets the sweep against Washington and steals 2 out of 3 from Cleveland at home, that’s 5 out 6. Not a bad start!

Okay, let’s not get too far ahead. Tonight at 7:05 it’s the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Washington Nationals.

Dodgers Handling Pirates

⚾ In MLB news, the Los Angeles Dodgers visited Pittsburgh to play the Pirates this evening. The game is actually still in session, it’s in the top of the 9th, and the Pirates are losing 5-1.

Overall, the Pirates are 23-35, and they’re in last place in the NL Central.

Offensively, Pittsburgh hasn’t had much going on tonight. They finally scored their first run in the 8th inning.
