Cole Tucker and Cody Ponce make their first starts of 2021. Tucker bats seventh and plays shortstop and Ponce makes his start on the mound. Tonight, they face Jake Arrieta and the Cubs. This is the third time Arrieta has faced the Pirates this season and he has a 2-0 record with a 2.25 ERA against them this season. Let’s hope the Pirates can change those fortunes tonight.
