Gameday 125 - Brewers

Pirates (67-57) vs Brewers (57-66)
7:05 PM ET
TV: ROOT Sports

PNC Park - Pittsburgh, PA

Starting Pitchers
Pittsburgh - Wandy Rodriguez (1-3, 5.06)
Milwaukee - Mike Fiers (6-6, 2.90)


The Pirates desperately need a win in this game to get back on track. They are not currently in a playoff spot, as the Cardinals have passed them for the second wild card spot, and they have fallen to 8 games behind the Reds. Key to tonight's game for me is for the Pirates to score first. They can't give up runs in the first inning and have to play catch-up all night. The Bucs are 36-12 when scoring first, as opposed to 31-45 when the opponent scores first. Starting tonight, the Pirates play 28 consecutive games against the Central division, making it a perfect time to gain ground on the Reds and Cardinals. They just have to take advantage of it.

Wandy Rodriguez is not good against guys in the Brewers lineup. There's just no getting around it. If you don't believe me, click on that link up there. I have never seen a group of players do so well against one pitcher. For the love of God Wandy, turn that around tonight. Rodriguez got his first win as a Buc Sunday night, coming in as relief in the 19th inning and earning the win.

Since flirting with a perfect game on Aug. 7, Fiers has pitched seven innings and allowed 12 runs in his last two starts. He gave up two home runs for just the second time this season in a loss on Saturday.
