Game 54: Pirates vs Diamondbacks

Posted by

Game Time: 12:35 ET
TV: ROOT Sports Pittsburgh, Fox Sports Arizona

Probable Pitchers: Zack Godley (1-1, 1.99 ERA) vs Chad Kuhl (1-5, 6.29 ERA)

Notes:

– Godley will be making his 6th start of the year after being plugged into the rotation following Shelby Miller‘s injury. He has yet to give up more than three runs in an outing.

– Kuhl will look to get back on track after giving up 5 ER over 4 1/3 IP in his last start vs the Mets. Kuhl has failed to pitch into the 6th inning since April 18th, a span of seven starts. He has never faced the Diamondbacks in his career.

– Since his “benching” in Atlanta, Andrew McCutchen is riding a six game hitting streak, in which he is 7 for 19 (.368) with 2 HR and a double.

Gregory Polanco was not in the lineup Tuesday and is also sitting today after spraining his ankle Monday afternoon. He is 6 for 15 with 2 HR since being activated from the disabled list on May 25th.
