The Pittsburgh Pirates (26-26) take on the Cincinnati Reds (25-29) tonight in game three of a four-game series. The Pirates are sending out Jordan Lyles for his tenth start today. He allowed six runs over 5.2 innings in his last outing. That followed one run and 12 strikeouts over seven innings in his previous game. He faced the Reds on April 4th and threw five shutout innings. The Reds will counter with Lucas Sims, a 25-year-old right-hander, who will be making his 2019 debut. He has faced the Pirates once in his brief MLB career (ten starts and 13 relief appearances). Last September he threw 1.2 shutout innings in relief against Pittsburgh.
