Pittsburgh looks to rebound as they were swept away by the Chicago Cubs this past series.
The Cardinals come in on a better note, as they took 3 of 4 against the Phillies.
Pittsburgh was rolling right along, but knew this week would prove a lot for them.
They started with division rival Chicago, and things didn’t go according to plan. The Pirates were outscored 20-5 in the series and swept away.
Trying to right the ship here, the Pirates will send out ace LH Francisco Liriano. The southpaw has gone 2-1 on the season with an ERA at 3.86. Liriano has seen plenty of St. Louis in his career and has solid success against them. The LH has gone 6-2 with an ERA that sits at 2.40 over 13 starts.
St. Louis Cardinals
The Cardinals were much more successful this week, taking 3 of 4 from Philadelphia. The Phillies even came into the series hot after sweeping Cleveland over the weekend.
Cardinals RF Stephen Piscotty has been the spark to this offense as of late. He rides a 4 game hitting streak and has been the run producer for this team, putting up 11 RBI in 11 games.
The Cardinals will send out RH Carlos Martinez to try and open this series on the right foot. Martinez has been a solid part of this rotation this year, going 4-1 with a 2.60 ERA. Martinez is just 2-3 in his career against the Pirates with a 4.71 ERA. However, he’s had 14 appearances with only 5 starts under his belt in that span.
