Nearly half of the way through the 2010 MLB season, the Pirates have not faired well.  They are just 23-43 this year, and are in the midst of a gigantic 11-game losing streak.  But the team they draw next has not done much better.  The Cleveland Indians are 25-40 on the year and are currently extending their own losing streak, albeit a much smaller one at 4 games.  These streaks are the longest currently in the Majors.  Something's got to give.  Maybe a good old fashioned rivalry game will finally be the spark the Bucs need to get back on track.  Time will tell.

Expected Pitching Matchups

June 18: Paul Maholm (4-4-5, 3.63 ERA) vs. Fausto Carmona (5-5-3, 3.23 ERA)
June 19: Jeff Karstens (1-2-9, 4.50 ERA) vs. David Huff (2-8-2, 5.82 ERA)
June 20: Brad Lincoln (0-1-1, 7.50 ERA) vs. Justin Masterson (2-6-5, 5.02 ERA)
