Pirates Are In A Desperate Situation

The Pirates need a win tonight  to stop the bleeding of  an extended  losing  streak and keep their faint playoff hopes alive.  The Bucs will send  Jameson Taillon (3-4) to the mound.  St Louis will counter with Mike Leake (9-9).  The Pirates trail the Cardinals and the Giants by five and half games for both wild card  spots.  The Mets are four and half games are ahead of the Pirates.  The Pirates and Cardinals right after Coaches Corner on WBVP-WMBA.
