NL Wildcard Game: Cincinnati Reds at Pittsburgh Pirates

Marlon Byrd and Pedro Alvarez of the Pittsburgh Pirates.

In the first Wildcard game of the year (yesterday was a tiebreaker game), the Cincinnati Reds will find themselves in enemy territory, Pittsburgh, to play the Pirates.  Pittsburgh finished with four more wins than Cincinnati which earned them the right to play at home, but the Reds have a far better run differential.  Of course, there is absolutely no love lost between these two squads, both of whom are in the NL Central.  The winner will be moving on to play another NL Central team, St. Louis, in the Divisional series which starts on Thursday.
