Fresh from their win last night, the Pirates take on the St. Louis Cardinals for the second game of this four-game series at PNC Park. The first pitch will be at 4:05 p.m. EDT, and the game will be broadcast on AT&T SportsNet Pittsburgh and is the free game of the day on MLB.TV.

Trevor Williams (1-7, 6.35 ERA, 42 K, STILL TOO MANY %$&@ HOME RUNS) will take the hill for the Bucs. When the best thing that can be said about a pitcher is “well, he gets in a lot of innings,” that’s not good. Still, we hope because we like him. The Cards will send Carlos Martinez (0-2, 10.32 ERA, 13 K) to the mound. Martinez was one of the many Cardinals to come down with COVID-19, returning to the team on September eighth and looking rusty.

Here are your lineups, and LET’S GO BUCS!
