The Pittsburgh Pirates return home to PNC Park after a horrible weekend trip against the Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park. The Bucs dropped three straight to the Brewers after taking two of three from the St. Louis Cardinals earlier last week. They now have a six game home stand against the two bottom dwellers in the N.L. Central, the Houston Astros and the Chicago Cubs.

They look into the debut of Brock Holt, the injury situations of Neil Walker and Starling Marte, as well as the pitching rotation currently and how it may look as the team heads down the stretch.
There’s an in-depth look at the divisional and Wild Card standings, as well as a brand new edition of Bucco Beat.
