Game thread: Williams and Flaherty set for rematch

MLB: Chicago Cubs at Pittsburgh Pirates Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

The Pirates will be sending Trevor Williams to the mound to face Jack Flaherty in what is a rematch of last Saturday’s game.

Williams got knocked around last weekend against the Red Birds, allowing seven hits and four runs over four innings. Flaherty fared much better, only allowing one run over six innings of work.

Austin Meadows will get the day off in what is part of the new outfield rotation. Either that or his day off is due to Hurdle’s irrational fear of a Meadows vs. Flaherty match up.

Game time is 7:15pm.

Here are the lineups:


  1. Josh Harrison 2B
  2. Francisco Cervelli C
  3. Starling Marte CF
  4. Josh Bell 1B
  5. Corey Dickerson LF
  6. Colin Moran 3B
  7. Gregory Polanco RF
  8. Jordy Mercer SS
  9. Trevor Williams P


  1. Matt Carpenter 3B
  2. Harrison Bader LF
  3. Tommy Pham CF
  4. Jose Martinez 1B
  5. Dexter Fowler RF
  6. Yairo Munoz
  7. Greg Garcia 2B
  8. Francisco Pena C
  9. Jack Flaherty P
