Pirates Vs. Astros: Tuesday Starting Lineups

The Pittsburgh Pirates currently sit seven games over .500, and as a result, just one game behind of the Cincinnati Reds in the N.L. Central standings. One of the reasons is because of starting pitcher A.J. Burnett. The 6-foot-4 right-hander takes the hill on Tuesday, going for his ninth consecutive winning start. In 13 starts this season, Burnett has gone 9-2 and posted a 3.31 ERA. He'll be acing Houston's Lucas Harrell, who is 7-6 with a 4.33 ERA this season.

First pitch at PNC Park is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. EST and will be televised by ROOT Sports.

Here are Tuesday's starting lineups:
