MLB: Pittsburgh Pirates at New York Mets Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Here’s the game thread for game two against the Dodgers.

Ivan Nova is set to take the hill. He has been hot since his return from the disabled list and will look to continue that success against the potent Dodger’s offense.

Facing Nova will be Clayton Kershaw. Kershaw was on the disabled list earlier in the month but looked good against the Cubs last week, throwing five innings and only allowing one earned run.

Here are the lineups:

PIRATES

  1. Austin Meadows CF
  2. Josh Harrison 2B
  3. Gregory Polanco RF
  4. Elias Diaz C
  5. David Freese 3B
  6. Josh Bell 1B
  7. Corey Dickerson LF
  8. Jordy Mercer SS
  9. Ivan Nova P

DODGERS

  1. Joc Pederson LF
  2. Max Muncy 2B
  3. Justin Turner 3B
  4. Cody Bellinger 1B
  5. Matt Kemp RF
  6. Yasmani Grandal C
  7. Chris Taylor SS
  8. Enrique Hernandez CF
  9. Clayton Kershaw P
