Pirates come to town for a rare visit against our battlin' Minnesota Twins. Season previews had the Pirates tanking this year so their record of 3 games over .500 and 5 games out of the second Wild Card slot had the Pittsburgh front office scrambling to add players. Which meant hello Chris Archer. Besides Archer, I didn't recognize a single player on the Pirates. I am sure the WGOM Allegheny version of this game log is probably saying the same thing about the Twins (Joe Mauer Exempted of course).
Jameson Taillon on the mound for the Pirates, who I think pitched decently against the Twins way back in April. He had a nice 2-run complete game last time out and has decent stats for the year. Jake Odorizzi for the Twins. He's been kinda o.k. but not good enough for me to look up his stats.
First pitch at 7:10p Entering the dog days of the season Citizens.
