The Pittsburgh Pirates will give everyone in their rotation a break as Kevin Corriea is going to get the start on Wednesday against the Arizona Diamondbacks. It’s a big start too. The series will be yet another important one as the Snakes are right in the middle of the Wild Card race at five and a half games back of the leaders Atlanta and Pittsburgh.
The Pirates right hander hasn’t faced Arizona this season.
Also, Correia hasn’t pitched since July 29 when he went two innings against the Houston Astros. Prior to the one relief appearance, Correia pitched 23 innings allowing ten earned runs in four starts. Each of the starts was a Bucco victory, two of them by a run and the other two by two runs.
