1979 World Series Live Blog Tonight - 7 p.m. - Game 2

Although 1979 World Series Game 1 ended in disappointment, the Live Blog was a success. Yet the live blog left many fans wanting more, by which I mean one person asked me when the next game would be.

So I have decided to Live Blog every game. The first game will start at 7 p.m. tomorrow (Wednesday) night. The rest of the games will be at 7 p.m. each Tuesday. Depending on how long the Series goes, that should take us about up to the start of Grapefruit League action.

Playing in cold and wet conditions in Game 1, the Pirates fought back from a 5-0 first inning deficit but lost 5-4. They'll look to salvage a series split tomorrow but have a tough task ahead of them, facing eight-time 20-game winner and future Hall of Famer Jim Palmer (10-6, 3.30). Bert Blyleven (12-5, 3.60) gets the ball for Chuck Tanner's Pirates.

The full schedule follows.

Game 1: 7 p.m. Wednesday, January 20 Live from Memorial Stadium in Baltimore
Orioles 5, Pirates 4 (Live Blog Innings 1-3) (Live Blog Innings 4-6) (Live Blog Innings 7-9)
