On Wednesday, the Pittsburgh Pirates are set to host the Los Angeles Dodgers at PNC Park. The Pirates have started the season strong with a record of 16-8, while the Dodgers hold a 13-11 record. In their previous game on Tuesday, the Dodgers won 8-7 after being behind by five runs in the middle innings, and will look to continue their three-game winning streak. The Pirates, on the other hand, will aim to avenge their loss in the upcoming match.
The Dodgers currently hold the top spot in the National League West division. The team’s most recent victory against the Pirates was an impressive comeback led by Chris Taylor’s standout performance. Tony Gonsolin, who had a remarkable 2022 season with a 16-1 record and a 2.14 ERA, will make his season debut on Wednesday. After recovering from an injury sustained during the spring, Gonsolin is highly anticipated by Dodgers fans, especially after pitching well in his only AAA rehab start, striking out seven batters and allowing two runs in three innings.
Despite losing shortstop Oneil Cruz to an injury that will keep him out for a few months, the Pirates have been performing well. They have already exceeded their projected win total of 67.5 for the season, and their current record puts them in first place in the NL Central division. Although they recently ended their seven-game winning streak on Monday, they will start 23-year-old right-hander Roansy Contreras, who has a record of 2-1 with a 4.57 ERA, in Tuesday’s game. Contreras had a solid season last year with a record of 5-5 and a 3.79 ERA in 21 games. He also has a decent record at home, with a 4-4 record and a 3.79 ERA in 13 career appearances, striking out 54 batters in 61 innings.
