After losing 4 straight the Pirates have gotten back on track with 2 straight wins. They are tied for 2nd place in the NL Central with the St. Louis Cardinals 3 games back of the Chicago Cubs.
The Padres have lost 5 of their last 6 games and they are in the basement of the NL West 4 games back of the L.A. Dodgers.
Last season the Pirates were 5-2 facing the Padres.
In their last games the Pirates beat the Milwaukee Brewers 9-3 and the Padres lost to the Arizona Diamondbacks 7-3.
The Pirates rank a respectable 11th in the Majors in runs scored and 17th in team ERA. In their last 2 games they have scored 14 runs and only given up 3.
Francisco Liriano (1-0 2.45 ERA) gets the starting nod for the Pirates and in his last outing he went 5 innings and gave up 3 earned runs in 6-5 win over the Cincinnati Reds. He was scratched from his last outing with a minor hamstring injury.
Since joining the Pirates Liriano has been solid facing San Diego with an ERA of only 1.74 in 5 starts where he has struck out 41 in 31 innings of work.
The Pirates are hoping that Liriano can go deep in this game, as their bullpen has really struggled this season with an ERA of 4.89.
The Pirates are 2-3 on the road this season and this is their first game in a 10-day road trip.
San Diego Padres
The Padres only rank 18th in the Majors in runs scored and 22nd in team ERA.
In the Padres earlier season series in Colorado they totaled 32 runs, but in their other 10 games they have only totaled 15.
Collin Rae (1-0 5.56 ERA) goes for the Padres in this NL match up and in his last start he only gave up 1 earned run in 7 innings, but got little help from the offense in the 2-1 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies.
This will be Rae’s first career start against the Pirates. He has his work cut out for him tonight facing a Pirates team that leads the Majors in team batting average and on base percentage.
Rae was tagged up for 5 runs in not making it out of the 4th inning in his first start of the season before a solid last outing.
The Padres are only 1-5 at home this season.
