Pirates (35-24) at Braves (36-22) 12:10 PM–Turner Field, Atlanta MLB.com Gameday TV: ROOT The Bucs will try and avoid a sweep for the second straight series as they take on the Braves in this very early getaway day afternoon game. Today’s starters… Wandy Rodriguez (6-3, 3.47) vs. Julio Teheran (3-2, 3.71) Rodriguez pitched well his last time out but two solo homers were enough to beat him. He’s been on a very solid run of late, failing to go six innings just once since the start of May. His best start of the year came against these Braves back in April – he threw seven shutout innings against them and allowed just one hit. Teheran was the weak link of the Braves’ staff when the Pirates last saw him (4 runs in 5 innings in April), but he has improved since then. The righty has posted quality starts in all but one outing since facing the Bucs on April 18th and struck out nine Nationals his last time out. Bucs vs. Teheran Braves vs. Wandy Here’s the #Pirates lineup for today’s 12:10pm game in Atlanta. #LetsGoBucs twitter.com/Pirates/status… — Pittsburgh Pirates (@Pirates) June 5, 2013
