Astros (32-49) at Pirates (44-36)

1:35 PM EST–PNC Park, Pittsburgh

Here is the MLB.com Gameday

TV: ROOT Sports

Happy Independence Day to all…what better way to celebrate than with the First Place Bucs? They’ll take on Houston in an afternoon contest in search of sole possession of first place.

Last night was pretty awesome, if you missed the recap.

Today’s starters…

Dallas Keuchel (1-0, 1.35) vs. Kevin Correia (4-6, 4.32)

Keuchel will be making his fourth career start, and has been pretty good so far. He’s soft-tossing,  pitch to contact lefty that won’t strike many people out.

Correia wasn’t too good last time out against the Cards and hasn’t been very good in general, but hopefully he can do enough against a pretty weak Houston lineup to give the Bucs a good shot this afternoon.

Pirates vs. Keuchel: no data

Astros vs. Correia:
