Joe Musgrove was initially scheduled to start Monday’s game and I praised him in my write-up for that one, but turns out he’ll actually be starting Tuesday’s game two.
So instead, I’ll focus on an offensive player for Pittsburgh: Gregory Polanco, who is enjoying his best full season as a big leaguer.
Polanco’s on-base percentage and slugging are both at career-high marks this season and he’s been as healthy this as he has in any other. He isn’t running as much but twelve steals in fourteen attempts represents his best percentage yet.
St. Louis Cardinals
The Pirates won’t catch St. Louis before the season is out but they always play the Birds tough and would love to spoil the Cardinals’ chances to make the playoffs here in mid-September.
Miles Mikolas is 0–1 in four starts against the Pirates this year, despite pitching well enough to win in at least two, and probably three, of those outings.
Mikolas has given up a season-high twelve hits in two of his last three starts, however. He’s thrown nearly 175 innings, which are already a clear career-high.

Musgrove is the fresher arm at this point but I say Mikolas digs deep and hangs.
