PNC Park gets prepared for her big day
Today is the big day, the home opener. Ian Snell (0-0, 3.00 ERA) will go to the mound for the Pirates and will face Braden Looper (0-1, 4.50 ERA). The Bucs started the season with a 4-2 road trip and will look to continue their winning ways in Pittsburgh. The atmosphere figures to be much more positive than it was at last year's home opener, when the Pirates arrived after starting the season 1-6. Expect a big day from Snell, who was very sharp in his first start of the season. It will be a cold one, so bundle up if you're going down to the park.
