Williams Leads Pirates Past White Sox

Reynaldo Lopez after giving up six runs on seven hits through two innings against the Pittsburgh Pirates at PNC Park

In his last start, May 5 against Minnesota in an 8-4 loss, he allowed all eight runs in 3 1/3 innings, yielding six hits and six costly walks, while striking out two.

"I thought we did our homework well last time", he said.

Kyle Crick and Richard Rodriguez completed the seven-hitter for Pittsburgh's major league league-best seventh shutout.

Pittsburgh's Gregory Polanco has an extra-base hit (two home runs and two doubles) in each of his last four games.

Meanwhile, the over is 7-0 in the Pirates' last seven Wednesday games and 4-1-1 in their last six in game two of a series. Sean Rodriguez and Bell also had run-scoring hits in the second.

Australia will provide Q1 data for wage prices, which are expected to hold steady at 0.6% on quarter and 2.1% on year. It was the first decline in nine quarters, snapping the longest stretch of continued expansion since the late 1980s.

"It's tough in the short term to come out of a game, but, hopefully, by coming out when I did, we've kind of mitigated it. ..."

Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Starling Marte was removed from Tuesday's game in the third inning with right side discomfort.

Chicago did not get a boost from the return of leadoff man Yoan Moncada, who was reinstated from the 10-day disabled list after recovering from a tight left hamstring. Marte appeared to tweak something in his torso while scoring on Josh Bell's double in the first inning, while Cervelli was hit on the inside of his right forearm by a Reynaldo López pitch in the third. Cervelli was replaced by Elias Diaz.

White Sox: Left-handed pitcher Hector Santiago (0-1, 5.60 ERA) will make a spot start Wednesday in the series finale.

There was no immediate word on the severity of Marte's injury, though both players nearly certainly will be held out of the Wednesday 12:35 p.m. finale of this two-game series with Chicago. He'll be replacing right-hander Carson Fulmer, whose scheduled start was pushed back to Saturday. He left his previous start on May 11 after just three innings with a laceration on the middle finger of his right hand.
