Bucs Dugout

Last night was one big missed opportunity. Walks, unearned runs, and seeing eye singles pushed the Astros back to two games under .500. Now Wandy needs to come through just so we can salvage a series win against the Pirates. He has been off and on, and off again, and then back on seemingly for the past month. Solid starts against Minnesota and San Diego sandwiched a not so great start against Detroit. He's 0-1 against Pittsburgh this season though, and sports a 5.37 career ERA against the Buccos in ten starts.
