MLB action comes to PNC Park where the Pittsburgh Pirates host the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday.
The Chicago White Sox have struggled to put wins together but have a shot at back to back victories following a 5-3 decision at the Chicago Cubs on Sunday. The White Sox received a competitive effort on the hill from Lucas Giolito who gave up two runs over 5.2 innings on a pair of hits and seven BB.

The CWS offense logged seven hits and a walk with Matt Davidson going deep and knocking in two while Nicky Delmonico knocked in a run and scored. The White Sox give Tuesday’s start to Reynaldo Lopez who faces Pittsburgh for the second straight outing. Lopez did not receive a decision in a 6-5 loss with a pair of runs plated on solo jacks over 7.1 frames.
The Pittsburgh Pirates look to get back in the win column after their five game winning streak came to an end in a 5-0 loss to visiting San Francisco on Sunday. Neither the arms or bats were able to come through with starter Ivan Nova charged with four runs on eight hits over 5.2 innings.
The Pirates were limited to seven hits and five free passes with four players hitting doubles while four reached base twice. Trevor Williams takes the mound in a rematch against the visiting White Sox on Tuesday. Williams was charged with four runs on a pair of two run homers in five innings of a 6-5 victory (ND).
Chicago White Sox are 7-25 in their last 32 overall and are 7-25 in their last 32 games on grass and under is 6-2 in Chicago White Sox last 8 road games. Over is 7-1 in Pittsburgh last 8 interleague games and Pittsburgh are 7-1 in their last 8 home games and Pittsburgh are 16-5 in their last 21 interleague games.
I don’t see a ton of difference on the hill but the White Sox do have more of a problem scoring so I’ll go with the Pirates…
