Game 21: Pirates (9-11) @ Braves (13-8)

After the Pirates dropped the first game on Friday, they won the second yesterday and are looking to at least split this four-game set by winning today’s game.  The projected starters for today’s game are Kevin Correia for Pittsburgh and Tim Hudson for the Braves.

Hudson, a 13-year MLB veteran, will be making his first start of the 2012 season after having surgery on a herniated disc in his back.  Last season, Hudson went 16-10, with a 3.22 ERA in 215 innings.  Throughout his career, he is 5-5 with a 2.85 ERA in 11 games against the Pirates.

Kevin Correia is starting for the fourth time this season.  In his previous three starts, Correia is 1-0 with an ERA of 2.00 after throwing in 18 innings.  He was much better on the road than at home last season, going 10-3 with an ERA of 2.64 in 88.2 IP.
