The Pirates will turn to rookie Nick Kingham as they try to salvage a split in what has been an otherwise frustrating series against the Cardinals.

Standing in the way of today’s victory (besides the Bucs’ bullpen) is the Cardinals’ Michael Wacha. Wacha has been solid this year, going 6-1 with a 2.71 ERA over 11 starts.

Game time is 2:15pm.
