Even though Justin Verlander cooled off the Pirates, they are still fighting for the lead in their division.  They managed two of three in their final interleague series against Detroit.  So now it's on to the Eastern part of the state.  They've got a four game series with the Phillies.  Philly has struggled, but they've usually been tough on the Pirates.  Tonight, tomorrow and Wednesday, they'll be on WFBG beginning at 6:40.  Remember that on Wednesday, Leading off with Joe Shuta will get things started at 6:00.  Then, the Bucs and Phils play Thursday afternoon, pre-game time is 12:35.

Then Pittsburgh travels to St. Louis for a weekend series with the Cardinals.  Air time on Friday is 7:50 and on Saturday, they'll have an afternoon affair, 1:50 air time.  On Sunday, the Neal Huntingdon Show will kick off the day at 1:05, then, pre-game time is 1:50.
