Pittsburgh sports talk with the Trib columnist

On location: Pirates 10, Cubs 4

.

Looking ahead to first pitch …

Game: Pirates (22-24) vs. Chicago Cubs (15-31)

Time: 1:35 p.m.

Site: PNC Park

TV, radio: Root Sports, 93.7 The Fan

Here is the live box score.

And here is the Pirates’ lineup vs. Chicago RHP Matt Garza

  1. Jose Tabata, LF
  2. Josh Harrison, SS
  3. Andrew McCutchen, CF
  4. Pedro Alvarez, 3B
  5. Neil Walker, 2B
  6. Garrett Jones, RF
  7. Matt Hague, 1B
  8. Michael McKenry, C
  9. Erik Bedard, LHP

UPDATE 1:38 p.m.: First pitch from Bedard to David DeJesus, 88 degrees …

2:10 p.m.: Alvarez’s first-inning blast marked the Pirates’ first three-run home run of the season. It’s May 27. That’s astounding in and of itself, but as always, we’ve got more. Our Rob Biertempfel points out that the Pirates’ last three-run shot came from, of all people, Ross Ohlendorf, last season in Los Angeles. And MLB.com’s Tom Singer tallied that it was only the 21st inning all season in which the Pirates produced more than two hits.

Other than all that, we all saw it coming.
