The old Pirates Game Discussion on No Quarter is now a Daily Pirates Discussion. We will update the article throughout the day with game notes, links to Pittsburgh Baseball Network stories, and any news for the day.
Indianapolis and Greensboro are the only minor league teams playing today. A lot of TBD for the pitching. I’ll fill some of that in later depending on what is announced ahead of time.
