A chance to sweep? Really?

Jason Davis gets the start today for the dentally challenged Jeff Karstens. He's facing Brad Thomspon in a game that's already started as the Pirates go for the improbable sweep of the Cardinals and put a nail in their playoff hopes once and for all (if they had won the first two games of this series, they'd be three games behind Milwaukee, instead they're five games behind the Brewers and 2.5 behind the Astros). That's something that I can certainly get behind after the awful losing skid we've been mired in.
