July 8: Pirates (30-54) @ Astros (34-50)
Ross Ohlendorf takes a streak of 13 scoreless innings into his start on Thursday. Not to mention, he doesn’t have to worry anymore about trying to get that first win.
Also, interestingly enough, Ohlendorf will be the third Texan starting for the Pirates in this series. Brad Lincoln, Daniel McCutchen and Ohlendorf were all born in Texas, and each of the three each has a home in the Lone Star State still.
Ohlendorf vs. HOU: 0-5 in 7 games, 27.1 IP, 41 H, 23 ER, 4 HR, 9 BB, 17 K
Oswalt vs. PIT: 14-7 in 27 games, 182 IP, 171 H, 53 ER, 7 HR, 27 BB, 145 K
