The Pittsburgh Pirates http://www.ravenscheapstores.com/miles-boykin-jersey-cheap , jockeying for first place in the National League Central the first several weeks of the season, go into a weekend series against Cincinnati looking at the possibility of spiraling into the cellar conversation with the Reds.

The Reds come to PNC Park with a three-game winning streak.

Cincinnati right-hander Matt Harvey (1-4, 5.97 ERA) is scheduled to oppose Pirates right-hander Chad Kuhl (4-4, 3.95) on Friday.

Both teams had a day off Thursday.

The Pirates are coming off a 5-4 win on Wednesday at Arizona that concluded a 2-4 road trip. Friday’s game launches a 10-game, 10-day homestand.

They have been plagued in recent games by a plethora of problems, from defensive lapses to baserunning blunders, blown leads to offensive droughts.

“We’re going to get home and figure a lot of things out,” Pittsburgh manager Clint Hurdle said.

Shortstop Jordy Mercer http://www.coltscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-bobby-okereke-jersey Jersey , who was 7-for-17 with a homer and four RBIs on the road trip, believes the Pirates can turn things around.

“It’s the ebb and flow of the season,” he said. “You’re going to get into some of these situations where things don’t go your way.

“We’re able to relax a little bit now. We got a win. Hopefully, we can scratch another one out and roll with some momentum, especially at home with a 10-game homestand. Hopefully, we’ll get some momentum at home and carry it into the next road trip.”

The Reds are coming off a 7-0 win on Wednesday at Kansas City and are looking to get their rotation into a prolonged groove.

They have gotten back-to-back quality starts after going 15 games without one. During the winning streak, their rotation has a 1.40 ERA after ranking last in the major leagues with a 5.68 ERA.

“You get that, you’re going to win ballgames. You’re going to win your share anyway Noah Fant Jersey ,” Cincinnati manager Jim Riggleman said of the recent improvement.

It falls on Harvey, who was acquired from the New York Mets on May 8 and will be making is seventh start with Cincinnati, to continue that. The Reds won in Harvey’s first three starts, then lost in his past three.

Last Friday, Harvey gave up three homers in his first three innings against St. Louis in a 7-6, 10-inning loss, then settled down in his subsequent three innings.

“That one had more well-thrown pitches than any of the games that he’s pitched … but the select few bad pitches he made really hurt him,” Riggleman said.

Harvey is 2-1 with a 4.76 ERA in six career starts against Pittsburgh.

Kuhl has allowed seven runs in his past four starts http://www.denverbroncosteamonline.com/dalton-risner-jersey , totaling 23 1/3 innings. Most recently, he gave up three runs and eight hits in 5 1/3 innings last Friday in a 3-1 loss to the Chicago Cubs.

In four career starts against the Reds, Kuhl is 1-1 with a 2.78 ERA.

Once in awhile, an NFL team will draft a player that will change the history of their franchise for the better. These players are usually future Hall of Famers, Pro Bowlers,, MVPs, and Super Bowl winners.Going into the offseason Drew Lock Jersey , franchise's have to determine what they need to make their team better, whether it be special teams, offense, or defense. They do this through free agency, the draft, and trades to try and improve on the previous season. Although this may sound easy, this is easier said than done. NFL organizations have to go through a lot of planning and scouting to make sure that they are making the right decision.In the 1998 draft, the Indianapolis Colts had a tough decision to make between QBs Peyton Manning and Ryan Leaf. Both had had very successful collegiate careers and were projected to be the first two picks. The Colts went on to pick Manning http://www.denverbroncosteamonline.com/dre_mont-jones-jersey , as the Tennessee Titans picked Leaf at number 2. While Manning went on to become one of the greatest QBs in history, Leaf is known as one of the biggest draft busts in history, which shows how much difference one pick could make. If the Colts would have picked Leaf instead of Manning, who knows how the Colts and Titans franchises would have turned out.Once a franchise finds that player they know can lead their team, they bring in other players to build a team that can lead them to the promise land, the Super Bowl. These are the players that helped change their franchises around in ways they did not think were possible.
