Keep this train moving

Currently, the Pirates have what I think can best be described as an unlikely 4 game winning streak. Four games means that there's been a win in the starts by everyone in the rotation except the guy going tonight: Tom Gorzelanny. He's got an ERA of almost 7 and he missed his last start with back problems. I suspect he's got bigger problems then that, but if he does, no one's fessing up to it. He'll take the mound against Chuck James tonight. James is not very good, but he's not supposed to be very good either. Still, he is the type of pitcher the Pirates should be able to keep this streak alive against. Of course, that requires an outing from Gorzelanny that's something less than an all-out disaster. Will we get it? I wouldn't count on it.
