Gameday Preview: Phillies vs Pittsburgh Pirates

Good Morning everyone and Happy Easter here from the West Coast.

I’m sorry I won’t have a game recap after today’s series finale today because I will be at my other families house probably playing croquet and shooting the shit for a while.

The Philadelphia Phillies play the Pittsburgh Pirates this afternoon in the series finale at PNC Park in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. Both teams have split the first two games of the series.

Vance Worley looks to have some swagger momentum from last year as he takes the hill today for the Phillies, Worley went 12-4 last year as a Phillies starter and was one of those great surprises for this team a season ago.

James McDonald will toe the rubber for the Pittsburgh Pirates, McDonald comes into this game with a career record of 18-20 and an ERA of 4.04. Before joining the Pirates Mcdonald was with the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Jim Thome and Juan Pierre both score a spot in the lineup today, there first starts of the year. Freddy Galvis will try again today to get his first Major League hit.

It’s supposed to be a high of 62 today with some wind in Pittsburgh, 20 percent chance of rain.

Should be a wonderful game three of the series if the Phillies can get some offensive production started, if not then it’s not going to be a very Happy Easter.

Everybody enjoy their day and Lets Go Phillies.
