After almost being no-hit by Detroit's Justin Verlander on Friday night, the Pittsburgh Pirates recovered to take game two of their series with the Tigers, 4-3, on Saturday evening. With a win Sunday, the Pirates would capture their fourth straight interleague series.
Kevin Correia (1-4, 4.50 ERA) is scheduled to take the mound for Pittsburgh, looking to avoid a loss in five straight starts. Correia last won on April 15, and has compiled a 0-4 record with a 5.79 ERA since that time. In his last start he gave up a season-high six runs in a 6-2 loss to the Miami Marlins.
Flamethrower Max Scherzer (2-3, 6.26) hits the hill for Detroit. Scherzer was 0-3 with a 9.88 ERA against National League foes during 2011 interleague play.
