After losing on Monday, the Pirates showed they have some fight left in them and beat the defending World Series champs, 9-0. Now the Bucs turn to Wandy Rodriguez in hopes of winning the series.
Rodriguez has been disappointing since joining Pittsburgh with just a 1-4 mark after being solid on a brutal Houston Astros squad. Interestingly, the only win Rodriguez has been able to pick up in black and gold was in relief against these Cardinals in an epic 19-inning affair.
For the Redbirds, Joe Kelly will make his way onto the mound in search of his fifth win this season. Kelly has been good with a 3.26 ERA being more indicative of his efforts than his 4-5 record. In 12 starts this year, Kelly has only given up more than three earned runs once.
The winner of this game moves one step closer to the NL wild card.
