Pittsburgh Pirates

The Pirates slide into this Friday night matchup with a 17-15 record that ranks them 4th in the NL Central. Pittsburgh has delivered two losing seasons consecutively over the last couple of years. And although they’re off to a winning start this time around, the Pirates haven’t exactly been turning heads.
