Good Morning! for April 26

A.J. Burnett has been giving James McDonald some tips on how to make it as an MLB pitcher.  Something’s working, because McDonald took a no-no into the 7th inning yesterday.  And James McDonald isn’t even good, right?

Unfortunately for Jimmy Mac, the Pirates offense continued to slump.  The score was 0-0 when Troy Tulowitzki broke up the no-hitter and the Pirates ended up losing the game 2-1.

The Bucs did manage to win game 2 of their double header.  Pedro Alvarez hit his fourth homer, which is worth watching to hear the ball clanking against the foul pole.

Elsewhere, the Cardinals avoided a sweep at the hands of the Cubs (gasp!) with a 5-1 victory.  David Freese homered (4) and had 3 RBI for the RedBirds.

And the Reds scored all 4 runs in the bottom of the 7th inning for a 4-2 over the Giants, improving to .500 for the season.

Only one NL Central game today on a Short Schedule Thursday…

11:35 AM CT

SF Vogelson 0-1 3.38 0.3 3.14

Why You Might Watch This: It’s the only game available, so you’re kind of stuck with this, aren’t you?  Anyhow, the Reds are going for a sweep.
