Interesting game Thursday for the Bucs. Pittsburgh manager Clint Hurdle was ejected by plate umpire Paul Emmel in the seventh after arguing a pitch call.
The Pirates have not been playing well. Losing their last series 3-1. The Pirates are throwing out Ivan Nova Friday night on the mound.
Nova has a 5.25 ERA and 1.50 WHIP in two starts vs. the Reds this year. He had a good outing vs the Cardinals, holding them to 3 runs and 8 hits in 5 2/3 innings.
Ivan Nova is 1-2 over his last three games with a 5.00 ERA. On the season he is 11-10 with a very good ERA of 3.81.
Cincinnati is starting to slow down. Although they were on hot streak, they have now lost 3 in a row. Robert Stephenson is ready to get them a win tonight.
Stephenson has had the best outing that he ever pitched in his last game. In 5 2/3 innings he allowed 1 earned run and 2 hits.
Stephenson has an ERA of 1.42 in the last three games. He is 1-4 on the season averaging a 6.13 ERA. He has been pitching very well lately the last few games he has a 1.20 WHIP.
Some quick news, Reds C Stuart Turner is expected to go on the paternity list Friday, and 1B Joey Votto has reached base in 28 consecutive games, the longest active streak in the major leagues.
