Game Thread: Williams vs. deGrom

MLB: Pittsburgh Pirates at Cleveland Indians David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

Pirates and Mets are set to square off in the third game of the series, tonight at 7:05pm EDT. Pittsburgh will be sending Trevor Williams to the hill to face Mets’ ace Jacob deGrom.

Trevor Williams will try for his third straight scoreless start. He earned the complete game shutout during last week’s six inning victory over the Indians.

Jacob deGrom has been ridiculously good this year, holding an 1.71 ERA over 131.1 innings while striking out 159. However, he hasn’t been getting much help. deGrom is winless in his last three starts, even while putting forth an effort of eight innings pitched in each outing.

Starling Marte is set to make his return to game action following his HPB on Wednesday. Dickerson remains out of the lineup for the fourth day in a row.

Here are the lineups:


  1. Amed Rosario SS
  2. Brandon Nimmo CF
  3. Wilmer Flores 1B
  4. Michael Conforto LF
  5. Jose Bautista RF
  6. Jeff McNeil 2B
