Gameday 123 - Padres

Pirates (67-55) at Padres (54-70)
10:05 PM ET
TV: ROOT Sports

Petco Park - San Diego, CA

Starting Pitchers
Pittsburgh - A.J. Burnett (15-4, 3.54)
San Diego - Jason Marquis (6-7, 4.08)

____________________________________________________________

Burnett has already posted the second-most wins of his career, but dismisses the personal side with "the more I win, the closer we get." Matched his season high of 10 strikeouts in last start versus Dodgers.

Marquis struggled in his last start against the Braves, allowing three home runs, two to Chipper Jones. That said, he's held his own and his strikeouts/per nine innings ratio (7.5) is higher than it's been in his 13-year Major League career.
