Well today is a great day to just hang out, watch some college football, and really just do a whole lot of nothing.
If you are not into the whole football thing you are in luck (I guess), the Pirates are at Houston for their second game of the series. If you are a betting person, or a person that is broke and needs quick gurenteed money then you bet the Astros today. The Pirates are on the road, they will most liekly lose. Only 18 road victories this year so if they do win today they will not win tomorrow.
Ross Ohlendorf is going for the Bucs today. He should really give us a nice chance to win today. This might not surprise anyone considering that we are on the raod but check out these stats on Ohlendorf: Ohlendorf is 0-4 with an 8.53 ERA in four lifetime starts against Houston -- Miguel Tejada is 9 for 13 against him. Great.
Ohlendorf is coming off a gem in his last outting when gave up one unearned run and four hits over a career-high eight innings Saturday against St. Louis -- striking out 11 -- in a 2-1, 10-inning loss. He also became the second pitcher in team history to strike out the side on nine pitches, doing so in the seventh inning.
Who knows what will happen. Lets hope we buck the trend.
