The Pittsburgh Pirates (13-26) take on the Chicago White Sox (26-15) in a quick two-game series at PNC Park, starting tonight at 7:05 PM. The Pirates are sending out Joe Musgrove, who will match up against right-handed pitcher Dylan Cease. Musgrove will be making his fifth start of the season. He has lost each of his first four starts. He has a 6.62 ERA in 17.2 innings, with 21 strikeouts and a 1.64 WHIP. Cease will be making his ninth start. He has a 3.29 ERA in 41 innings, with 28 strikeouts and a 1.34 WHIP.
Tomorrow is Roberto Clemente Day around baseball. The Pirates will all wear #21. Today on Pittsburgh Baseball History we featured a record tying game from Clemente, along with a guest submitted article on a very rare Clemente card.
