Marvel takes the hill for the Pirates in game two in Milwaukee

Pirates’ Minor League Pitcher of the Year James Marvel (0-2, 9.00) will make his third major league start tonight at 7:10 p.m. Eastern at Miller Park in Milwaukee, as Pittsburgh try to snap a seven game losing streak. He’ll be faced by Brewers right-hander Zach Davies (10-7, 3.70)

Davies, who missed about a third of last season with a rotator cuff inflammation, has bounced back nicely in his fourth full season in the majors. Owner of a 3.95 career ERA, except for his hobbled 2018 season, Davies has posted a season ERA between 3.70 and 3.97 in every other year that’s he’s appeared.
