Notes:

-After taking three of four from both the Braves and Phillies the Pirates could pass the Cardinals up in the NL Central tonight with a win.

-Lance Lynn goes for the Cardinals and he has been pretty good so far this year. In his last outing he went seven innings against the Phillies and struck out eight while not giving up any runs in a Cardinals 7-0 win.

-In his last meeting against the Pirates on April 15 he gave up seven hits in five innings of work, striking out four and giving up four earned runs. The Pirates were able to get to him and will hope to do so again tonight.

-Jonathan Sanchez is on the bump for the Pirates. He has been nothing short of awful so far this season. He lasted only three innings in a Pirates win over the Braves last week where he struck out five and let in a couple of runs despite consistently getting into trouble.
