Even after blowing a late-inning lead on Wednesday night, the Pittsburgh Pirates still have the opportunity to take three out of four games from the division-leading Milwaukee Brewers on Thursday afternoon at Miller Park.

Ivan Nova (7-4, 2.91 ERA) looks to continue his masterful season against Milwaukee’s similarly impressive right-hander Chase Anderson (5-2, 2.92 ERA). First pitch will happen at 2:10 PM EST.
