Chicago White Sox (30-34) @ Pittsburgh Pirates (23-42)
The Pittsburgh will look to snap a 10 game losing streak and avoid a three game sweep at the hands of the Chicago White Sox.
Ross Ohlendorf, the Pirates 11 game winner in 2009, will be looking for his first win of the season. Ohlendorf is 0-4 with a 4.95 ERA on the season.
Pedro Alvarez will appear in his second career game and remain in the No. 6 spot in the lineup.
Manager John Russell though will shakeup his batting order.
Lastings Milledge (.260 – 0HR – 17 RBI) will make his second straight start after going 2-for-3 with a double in Wednesday’s loss. Milledge will move into the No. 5 spot in the batting order and Ryan Doumit will slide back to the No. 7 spot.
