Pirates (67-55) at Padres (54-70)

10:05 PM EST–Petco Park, San Diego

Here is the MLB.com Gameday

TV: ROOT Sports

The Pirates will look for a bit of redemption–not only for last night’s loss but for the last time this same pitching matchup occurred–tonight against San Diego. The Padres have had the Bucs’ number lately, winning a ridiculous 16 of 19 contests against Pittsburgh.

Tonight’s starters…

A.J. Burnett (15-4, 3.54) vs. Jason Marquis (6-7, 4.08)

Burnett won his last start and all the yelling and screaming was pretty memorable, but he didn’t pitch very well. He didn’t pitch well in his previous outing either, which was against Marquis and the Padres. Let’s see if he can get back on track tonight.

Marquis isn’t very good generally, but pitched an absolutely dominant complete game shutout in that game against the Bucs back at PNC. Hopefully the Pirates go at him with a better approach tonight.
