New, comments

The Pirates will send Jeanmar Gomez to the mound against Seattle and former Cy Young winner Felix Hernandez

USA TODAY Sports

It may seem like an impossible task, but possibly the strangest statistical oddity of the Pirates' season so far is the fact that they're 7-0 in Gomez' starts. They'll be looking to win their sixth straight and go 18 games over .500, while improving on MLB's second-best record.

The lineup:

1. Marte, LF
2. Martin, C
3. McCutchen, CF
4. Jones, DH
5. Alvarez, 3B
6. Walker, 2B
7. G.Sanchez, 1B
8. Snider, RF
9. Mercer, SS
