At 7PM Eastern Time on MLB Extra Innings Channel the Pittsburgh Pirates host the Milwaukee Brewers. Getting the start for Pittsburgh will be Dario Agrazal as he will oppose Brewers righthander Jordan Lyles. The Brewers as they complete their series on Sunday with the Chicago Cubs sit three games out in the NL Central race and two games out of a wildcard spot. That is because Milwaukee has lost three straight and five of their past six games after dropping a 4-1 road decision at the Cubs on Saturday. Pittsburgh has played their way out of contention as the team has lost 7 of their past 26 games overall as they finish their series with the New York Mets on Sunday afternoon. Jordan Lyles sits at 6-7 on the season in eighteen starts with an ERA of 5.15 and WHIP of 1.44. He came over in a trade with the Pirates as he battles his former team. Lyles in his first start with his traded team allowed one run and three hits over five innings of a 4-2 road win at Oakland. Dario Agrazal is 2-2 on the campaign with an ERA of 3.65. He faced the Reds on the road Wednesday giving up three runs and six hits over 3 2/3rd innings of a 4-1 road defeat.

The late night game begins at 10PM Eastern Time as the LA Dodgers host the St Louis Cardinals. Michael Wacha takes the hill for St Louis to face LA righthander Tony Gonsolin. St Louis holds a ½ game lead back of the Chicago Cubs in the NL Central race as they finish up their interleague series in Oakland on Sunday afternoon. St Louis swept the Dodgers in a four game series at home in their first meeting way back in April. Michael Wacha sits at 6-5 on the year in 14 starts with an ERA of 5.15 and WHIP of 1.61. He last started over a month ago where he allowed four runs and six hits over 3 1/3rd innings at Seattle. Wacha moves out of the bullpen where he was demoted for ineffectiveness. After their win against San Diego on Saturday night the LA Dodgers sat 16 games up in the NL West after winning four of five. Tony Gonsolin gets the start as Hyun Jin Ryu hits the DL with a neck injury. Gonsolin was called up from Triple A and in limited work with the big club has an ERA of 5.63 in one start and a relief appearance.
