MLB: Milwaukee Brewers at Pittsburgh Pirates Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

The Pirates and Cubs are set to square off as Pittsburgh eyes a series win while looking to serve as a barrier between Chicago and a division title.

The Bucs will have Trevor Williams at the helm ready to face Chicago’s Jon Lester. Williams has been ridiculous lately, delivering six scoreless innings in each of his last two starts on his way to earning victories. Lester has also earned a win in each of his last two outings while throwing seven shutout innings against Cincinnati on 9/15 and then tossing five innings of two run baseball against the cross town rivals on 9/22.

Here are the lineups for the 8:05pm match up:

  1. Pablo Reyes LF
  2. Starling Marte CF
