Pirates vs. Reds: Game time, TV schedule, and more

The Pittsburgh Pirates' quest to reach the .500 mark before the end of the season continues Sunday, as a three-game series with the visiting Cincinnati Reds concludes at PNC Park. Saturday's walk-off victory, 2-1, kept alive the Pirates' hopes to snap a 19-year streak of losing seasons.

Lefty Wandy Rodriguez (12-13) will take the mound for the Pirates (77-81) and oppose the Reds' Johnny Cueto (19-9). Cueto will be looking to become the third National League pitcher to reach the 20-win mark -- New York Mets knuckleballer R.A. Dickey and the Washington Nationals' Gio Gonzalez have each already accomplished the feat. If Cueto is able to win his 20th game, he would become the first Red to reach the plateau since Danny Jackson in 1988.

Rodriguez is looking for his fifth consecutive win.

First pitch is scheduled for 1:35 p.m. ET, and the game can be watched locally on Root Sports.
