MLB: Pittsburgh Pirates at St. Louis Cardinals Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports

The Pirates are set to open up a three game series against the Kansas City Royals. Pittsburgh will send Joe Musgrove to the hill to face KC’s Brad Keller.

Musgrove has been an innings eater for the Bucs in 2018 but has gotten knocked around lately, allowing 15 runs in his last four starts. He is 1-2 over those four outings.

Oppositely, Brad Keller has been locked in over his last three outings, going at least seven innings and never allowing more than two earned runs in each start.

Here are the lineups for tonight’s 7:05pm contest:
