Live Game Discussion: Pirates at Cubs, 2:20 PM; Moran Leaves with Injury

The Pittsburgh Pirates (13-18) are at Wrigley Field for a three-game series against the Chicago Cubs (16-16). Wil Crowe gets the ball in game two on Saturday afternoon. He has a 4.66 ERA in two starts and a relief appearance, with seven strikeouts and a 1.66 WHIP in 9.2 innings. Right-handed pitcher and former Pirates Trevor Williams gets the ball for the Cubs. He has a 6.00 ERA in 27 innings over six starts, with a 1.74 WHIP and 29 strikeouts.

UPDATE: Colin Moran left the game in the first inning with what looked like a hamstring or a groin injury. He walked off under his own power, but it was noticeable pain and a slow limp. I’ll post an update when the Pirates give one after he gets looked at. Todd Frazier replaced him at first base.
