Nationals Vs. Pirates Lineup: Pittsburgh Sends A.J. Burnett To Face Washington

Burnett gets the start on the bump for Pittsburgh, looking for his second win of the season.

Edwin Jackson will take the hill against the Pirates. Jackson is currently 1-1 with a 3.69 ERA in five starts.

The rest of the Pirates' lineup is as such:

The game is scheduled for a 7:05 first pitch from PNC Park. Television coverage will be provided by Root Sports. Radio coverage will be provided by KDKA-FM 93.7.
