Ah, a meaningful game is being played at Coors tonight. Sure it isn’t meaningful to Rockies fans, since our “hometown heroes” haven’t seen sunshine since April, but Pirates fans sure would love to punch their ticket to the post season via RoxVille. All they have to do is what they’ve done the past two days – beat the Rox.
Which got a whole lot easier after last nights Line Drive Heard Round LoDo.
Nolan Arenado took a smoked screamer off his wrist just before taking a face plant in hot corner dirt last night in the ninth. He came out of the game (no surprise), passed a concussion test (mild surprise) and isn’t in tonights lineup (shocker..not).
Christian Bergman will be on the mound, game will be on the telly and Nolan will be on the bench…shame.
