The Pittsburgh Pirates (65-89) are playing a three-game series on the road against the Milwaukee Brewers (84-70). In game two tonight, James Marvel will make his third career start. He pitched well in his debut against the St Louis Cardinals on September 8th, allowing two runs over five innings. That was followed six days later by seven runs over four innings against the Chicago Cubs.
The Brewers will counter with 26-year-old right-hander Zach Davies, who has a 3.70 ERA in 150.2 innings, with 98 strikeouts and a 1.33 WHIP. He faced the Pirates twice in early June, giving up two runs over eight innings in the first game, followed by three runs over five innings six days later. He then faced them twice in a row on June 30th/July 5th and combined to allow one run over ten innings.
