Marlins Vs. Pirates Lineups: Anibal Sanchez, Jeff Karstens Face Off As Bucs Go For Sweep

The Pirates go for a sweep of the Florida Marlins Sunday at 1:35. Jordy Mercer, who tripled in Saturday's game, gets a rare start as Anibal Sanchez faces Jeff Karstens.

Sanchez allowed five runs in 5.1 innings against the Giants in his last start, although he struck out seven. He dominated the Nationals in his start before that, but prior to that he allowed seven runs against the Braves. He leads the Marlins with 102 strikeouts this year. In 114 innings, he has walked 33 batters.

Karstens has had four starts, two good and two rocky, since returning from the disabled list in late June.
