Kevin Correia will start for the Buccos. The right-hander has won five of his last six starts, and a Wednesday win would make it five in a row, a career first. He gave up two runs over six and a third innings in his last outing against Chicago, on May 26.
Ryan Dempster is still a Cub after rejecting a deal that would have sent him to the Braves. He makes his 16th start of the season. Sporting a 2.11 ERA, the veteran righty has been a bright spot for the struggling Cubs. After five straight starts in which he did not allow a single run, he gave up four in a loss to the Cardinals in his last outing.
The Pirates' lineup looks like this:
Chicago will go with the following lineup:
The game starts at 12:35 p.m. Eastern.
