Astros Vs. Pirates: Game Time, TV Schedule And More

The first pitch from Lucas Harrell is scheduled to be thrown at 7:05 p.m at PNC Park and will be televised on Root Sports-Pittsburgh and Fox Sports Houston.

In the first game of four-game series between the two NL Central opponents, the Pirates easily won with an 11-2 showing. Now they'll look to make it back to back victories as A.J. Burnett is set to take the mound for Pittsburgh in an attempt to win his ninth consecutive start.

The last time Burnett earned a loss was on May 2 when he allowed 12 runs and two home runs in less than three innings pitched in a 12-3 defeat to the St. Louis Cardinals. Since then, Burnett has watched his ERA drop from 8.01 to 3.31 and has earned eight straight wins. The last time he didn't earn a decision was against the Astros On May 13.

Looking to snap that streak for the Astros will be Lucas Harrell, who is coming off a complete game shutout in his last outing. On Wednesday, Harrell allowed six hits, but not a single run as he struck out seven Padres en route to a 1-0 win.
