Last time the Pirates played the Giants, they were on a west coast road trip and San Francisco was the hottest team in baseball.  As a result, they were only able to take 1 game out of the 3 game series.  Since then they have cooled off some, but are still posting a respectable 4 games above .500.  One interesting stat is that the Giants are 19-11 in Frisco, but only 9-13 on the road.  The Pirates have won 2 games in a row, so they will be looking to build on that streak with the help of mustaches and pulled up socks.

Freddy Sanchez makes his return to Pittsburgh after being traded, so expect a lot of the broadcast to be about him.

I finally get a chance to go to a game on Friday.
