MLB Friday

Phillies got cancelled with Joe Blanton getting scratched, but we get the late game in late inning.
Interleague play. Detroit Tigers at Pittsburgh Pirates.
Brad Penny pitching for the Tigers looking good lately. He's beat Kansas City, Toronto and the Yankees all in May, pitching just under 22 innings he's given up 3 runs total. It's been awhile going head to head with the Pirates, but Penny facing the Bucks in over a decade is 6-1. Pirate's pitcher Jeff Karsten has been struggling in May with 1 loss and 2 ND's. He's pitched under 15 innings, 18 hits, 6 ER and gave up 4 HR's. It doesn't look good for the Pirates, but Penny despite his recent success and 5 quality starts out of 9, 4 of the quality start are at home and of the 4 starts he's had away he's only has 1 quality start with 3 losses. While Karsten has only logged 2 quality start out of 6 both were at home and Jeff has 3 home starts. The Tigers to disappoint after the tough battle with Boston

Pittsburgh Pirates +121(W)
