Game thread: New look Pirates go for sweep

MLB: San Francisco Giants at Pittsburgh Pirates Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

The Pirates will try to lock down a sweep of San Francisco and extend their winning streak to six in a 1:35pm start. Chris Archer returns from his extra day of rest suspension to face a lineup that has nobody in it hitting better than .244. The Giants counter with Dereck Rodriguez, who doesn’t throw especially hard but mixes up the standard four pitches very effectively. The Pirates’ lineup is, like almost every day, something new.
