Live Discussion: Pirates at Braves, 12:10 PM

The Pittsburgh Pirates (30-37) are in Atlanta (39-29) for a four-game series against the Braves. Games four is this afternoon, with Joe Musgrove going for the second time in this series. He was ejected from the first game back on Monday after the benches cleared in the first inning. Musgrove made his previous start against the Braves as well, allowing three runs over eight innings last Wednesday in Pittsburgh. The Braves will counter with 28-year-old right-hander Julio Teheran, who has a 3.03 ERA in 77.1 innings, with 74 strikeouts and a 1.20 WHIP. He has thrown shutout ball in each of his last two starts, pitching five innings against the Detroit Tigers or June 2nd, and six innings against the Miami Marlins five days ago.

Here are the lineups:

John started working at Pirates Prospects in 2009, but his connection to the Pittsburgh Pirates started exactly 100 years earlier when Dots Miller debuted for the 1909 World Series champions. John was born in Kearny, NJ, two blocks from the house where Dots Miller grew up. From that hometown hero connection came a love of Pirates history, as well as the sport of baseball.

When he didn't make it as a lefty pitcher with an 80+ MPH fastball and a slider that needed work, John turned to covering the game, eventually focusing in on the prospects side, where his interest was pushed by the big league team being below .500 for so long. John has covered the minors in some form since the 2002 season, and leads the draft and international coverage on Pirates Prospects. He writes daily on Pittsburgh Baseball History, when he's not covering the entire system daily throughout the entire year on Pirates Prospects.
