Pittsburgh Pirates (2-7) at Minnesota Twins (7-2)

Projected starters

RHP Joe Musgrove (0-2, 4.76 ERA) vs RHP Jose Berrios (0-1, 7.00 ERA)

Musgrove has racked up 15 strikeouts, but he has allowed four home runs already. That's not a good sign considering the Twins are stacked up with more power from top to bottom.
