The Pittsburgh Pirates (15-36) take on the St Louis Cardinals (24-24) in game four of a five-game series on Saturday night. Mitch Keller will be on the mound against lefty Kwang Hyun Kim. Keller will be making his second start since returning from an oblique strain. He has a 5.06 ERA in 10.2 innings, with seven strikeouts and a 1.59 WHIP. Kim has made five starts and one relief appearance. He has an 0.63 ERA in 28.2 innings, with 17 strikeouts and an 0.91 WHIP.
