If the lineup ain't broke, don't fix it.
- Erik Bedard has made 19 interleague starts, and is 9-3 with a 2.93 ERA.
- The Pirates have won 10-of-13 going into tonight, posting the best record in MLB since May 25th.
- Tonight will mark the fourth sellout of the season at PNC Park, thanks to the Bucs hot play, fireworks and Boyz II Men after the game.
- Utility guy Yamaico Navarro was sent down to get some steady at-bats at Indy. Seems to be the ticket; he's been on a nine game hitting streak since the move.
- Tim Williams of Pirate Prospects has updated his Top Twenty prospects list to include the new draft class.
