The Pittsburgh Pirates will take to the field Friday night looking for their third straight win. Luckily for them the lowly Houston Astros come in to tonight's game losing 23 of their last 25 games.

The Pirates will be anchored at the top of the order by Starling Marte, who sent shockwaves through the MLB after hitting a home run with the very first pitch he saw in the majors. He will go against Jordan Lyles, who is 2-7 with an ERA of 5.50.
