The Pittsburgh Pirates (12-10) try to avoid the four-game sweep against the Arizona Diamodbacks (14-11) this afternoon at PNC Park. The Pirates will send out Jameson Taillon, who allowed one run over five innings in his last start against the San Francisco Giants. His outing was shortened due to rain. The Diamondbacks will attempt the series sweep with Zack Greinke on the mound. He has a 4.60 ERA in 29.1 innings over five starts, with 32 strikeouts and a 1.13 WHIP. He threw six shutout innings against the Chicago Cubs in his last start.

The weather doesn’t look too positive today, with a decent chance of rain until much later tonight, so they might have trouble getting this game in today. It’s an early start time, so it’s possible that we might be here waiting around for play to start/resume.

Here are the lineups:
