The Pittsburgh Pirates (3-6) are in Arizona today for their night game against the Diamondbacks (6-3).
Bedard has pitched well so far for Pittsburgh, allowing just three runs in his 12 innings pitched, but has an 0-2 record to show for it, including a 1-0 Opening Day loss to Roy Halladay and the Philadelphia Phillies.
Saunders tossed seven innings of shutout ball in his first start of the season. Given Pittsburgh’s offense this season, I wouldn’t be overly surprised to see Saunders’ ERA still sitting at 0.00 after tonight.
The Pirates snapped a five-game losing streak last night when they beat the San Francisco Giants 4-1 and avoided suffering a second consecutive road sweep to a California team.
Kevin Correia started that one, lasting six innings and allowing just one run on three hits and a walk. He struck out two and now has a season ERA of 1.50. Joel Hanrahan recorded his first save of the season in his first such opportunity.
Here’s how the offense did:
Tonight’s game is scheduled for a 9:40 ET start.
