It's back to the Friendly Confines ... presuming a place can still be friendly with barely any people inside. Both teams should show up fresh. The Pirates had their first off-day yesterday, and the Cubs were rained out last night in Cincinnati. Darvish was supposed to start against the Reds, and he'll now start this one.
Media gates open at 4:15 p.m. Eastern. Derek Shelton will have his pregame news conference around that time, too.
