Feel the enthusiasm! The Pirates at least get to face Chris Rusin, who's pretty much an Astros-grade starter, although we've seen in the past that a bad pitcher is no guarantee of anything when the Pirates are playing poorly.

The Bucs' lineup:

Brock Holt 2B
Starling Marte LF
Andrew McCutchen CF
Garrett Jones RF
Gaby Sanchez 1B
Pedro Alvarez 3B
Michael McKenry C
Clint Barmes SS
Jeff Locke P
