Pittsburgh vs. Houston, 14 August 2005

Dave Williams (9-8, 4.18) vs. Ezequiel Astacio (2-5, 6.75). Astacio's major league numbers don't look great yet, but he has good stuff and a fine minor league record, and he has pitched very well in three of his last four starts, including six strong innings to beat the Bucs on July 19. He'll face off against the Pirates' second best starter - see below.
