Can Dave Parkers’ number bring Jakubauskas, who will be the Pirates seventh starter in just 17 games, good luck in Houston tonight?
Will Andrew McCutchen be more productive in the third hole? Garrett Jones is 10-for-26 against the Astros. Evan Meek continues to roll with 8IP and 9K in his last five appearances. Meek has been scored on once in his eight appearances this season. The bullpen has 56 strikeouts this year.
Can the Pirates steal a victory with an interesting lineup tonight? For some reason I feel good about it, and am putting my money where my mouth is.
