SeriesPreview: Pirates @ Cubs May 1-2

Following a lost weekend with the Brewers the Cubs(13-10) couldn't be happier to see the Pirates(7-19) come to town. The Pirates have been just plain AWFUL on the road 1-12. Overall they've only won 2 of their last 10 ballgames. Simply stated, the Cubs are getting the Bucs when they are struggling. Hopefully the Northsiders can find a way to take 2 from the Pirates.
