Let's keep this brief: the Pirates are 24-17, but they haven't won more three games in a row at any point this season. They are playing the Astros now. They've won three games in a row. Maybe it's time to change that. Jeanmar Gomez pitches for the Pirates tonight, trying to extend his ridiculously improbable season one more game. Jordan Lyles is starting for the Astros. He's been pretty bad this year. First pitch tonight is at 7:05.
