Jameson Taillon will take the hill as the Pirates look to complete the season sweep of Chicago’s South-Siders. Pirates will be taking the field without a few of their regulars, today. Marte and Cervelli both exited last night’s game due to injuries and remain out of the starting lineup for today’s game. Josh Bell has also been given the day off.

Santiago, who has primarily been used out of the pen, will be making his third start of the season for the White Sox. He is 0-1 with a 5.60 ERA over 27.1 innings pitched so far in 2018.

Here are the lineups:
