This isn't rocket science or anything, but the Pirates win yesterday would be made a lot better by a second win today. It'd give the Bucs a road series win, it'd bring their record up to 3-5, it'd put the lost weekend in LA one game further behind everyone. Today is particularly important since it's a James McDonald start, which is a crazy and unpredictable and really important thing for the Pirates. Brandon McCarthy, who got lit up in his season debut, goes for the Diamondbacks. First pitch tonight is at 9:40.
