The Pirates are last in the NL Central and have lost 12 of their past 13 and are just plain awful on the road this season. Awful.
So far this year the Bucs are 4-8 against Houston and are 2-4 away from PNC Park against the Astros. 2-4 is actually pretty good considering they are 18-50 on the road as a whole this year. The last Pirate win on the road was a 7-3 win over the Rockies on August 11. August 11. That is one calander month from the last time the Pirates won away from PNC Park. I just don't get it.
During the 11 game road losing streak the Pirates are only batting .218 and the pitcher are supporting an 8.02 ERA.
This should be good.
