How does this happen?

Somehow, it seems like every time I try to go to a Pirate game these days, Tony Armas Jr. is on the mound. That's just plain unfair. The Braves will send lefty Chuck James to the mound against Armas and I'm rather curious to see what kind of lineup Tracy will use to counter the lefty. James has had some control trouble this year, walking fourteen batters in 35 and 1/3 innings, including four walks in less than four innings in his last start. Accordingly, I don't look for the Pirates to draw more than one or two walks tonight, because that's what we do.
