After winning in last night’s series opener against the Miami Marlins, the Pirates look to make it their fourth straight series where they open with two wins in as many games.

Bryse Wilson get another start for Pittsburgh and has looked sharp, but he’s developed a routine of having one inning where everything crashes in burns. This would be a great day to end that streak.

Alford and Perez hitting in the five and six spots is... intriguing. Alford has looked reasonably better at the plate recently, but Perez is questionable. Most likely playing the lefty-on-righty matchup.
