Can they keep it up?

Guess who's got the longest winning streak in the NL at the moment. Yep, you're right, it's the Pittsburgh Pirates. They take that five game winning streak to PNC Park tonight against the Reds for the second of the three game series. The pitching match-up tonight is certainly favorable. We send out Tom Gorzelanny to face off with Matt Belisle. Gorzo's been almost as lights out as Snell to this point in the year and he's been luckier, getting three wins in his four starts. Belisle's been pretty good to this point, but he's still a converted converted reliever with middling stuff. Of course, that doesn't mean anything against the Pirates offense. Can Gorzo hold the Reds to the required two runs or less? I guess we'll find out tonight.
