Zach Duke (LHP) (5-3, 2.84 ERA, 32 K) @ Gavin Floyd (RHP) (2-4, 7.71 ERA, 35 K)

8:11 P.M. EST @ U.S. Cellular Field

Interleague play begins with tonight’s game against the Chicago White Sox.

Post Game Update
Yep… we suck at interleague play. At 63-101, the Pirates have the worst interleague record in Major League Baseball. The record only got worse tonight because the Pirates couldn’t figure out Gavin Floyd and only got 2 hits.

Zach Duke recorded an 8 inning complete game in the loss. Duke didn’t pitch bad, but he got no help. The White Sox first run came following a stolen base by Alexi Ramirez where replay later showed that Ramirez was out. Duke also surrendered a solo HR to Ramirez in the 8th.

This game was done in a speedy 1:51, and this game had just four plate appearances above the minimum.
