Notes:

-The Pirates are coming off their most productive day offensively after scoring six runs on 11 hits last night against the Diamondbacks. You know what consecutive games won means right?



-Wade Miley going for the Diamondbacks today. Miley won his first start of the season when he gave up only one run over six innings against Milwaukee where he gave up only five hits and struck out eight.

-Jonathan Sanchez will look to have another good start. While he didn't blow anyone away in his last outing he was much better than most people thought he would be as he went five innings, gave up six hits, struck out four, and only walked one batter. No idea what to expect today though.

-The Pirates are really throwing out their Sunday lineup today. John McDonald is going to play for Neil Walker and Josh Harrison is going to be at third base for Pedro Alvarez so that should pack some, um, punch to the lineup?
