Notes:

-The roof at Chase Field will be open tonight. The ball should travel a little better than it being open. Hopefully all the warning track power balls the Pirates have been hitting will carry out now.

-Trevor Cahill is the only Diamondbacks pitcher to suffer a loss this season as he gave up three runs in 5.2 innings against the Cardinals where he struck out seven and allowed five hits.

-On the flip side Wandy Rodriguez is the only Pirates pitcher with a win this year after he threw 6.2 shutout innings against the Cubs on the second game of the season. He struck out six and yielded only two hits.

-The Diamondbacks are third in the league with a .293 average. They also have scored 37 runs and collected 71 hits in their six games while the Pirates are hitting .119 with eight runs and 21 hits. Wooo.
