Williams helps Pirates shut out struggling Sox

  • Pittsburgh Pirates' Adam Frazier left beats the tag by Chicago White Sox catcher Welington Castillo to score from first on a double off the center field wall by Pittsburgh Pirates' Gregory Polanco during the sixth inning of a baseball game in Pi

Starling Marte exited in the first inning Tuesday night at PNC Park with what a team official called "right side discomfort", and Francisco Cervelli exited two innings later shortly after being hit by a pitch on the right forearm.

Williams (5-2) struck out six and walked none in his longest outing of the season. "Hopefully we caught it early enough to where it won't bother me for the rest of the year or anything", Taillon said.

Kyle Crick and Richard Rodriguez completed the seven-hitter for Pittsburgh's major league league-best seventh shutout.

Meanwhile, the over is 7-0 in the Pirates' last seven Wednesday games and 4-1-1 in their last six in game two of a series.

Pittsburgh built its 4-0 first-inning lead on Adam Frazier's homer, Josh Bell's two-run double and Colin Moran's RBI double. "I feel like, for the most part, we were anticipating slower, earlier and it kind of just worked out for us".

Marte was lifted immediately in favor of Sean Rodríguez, with the Pirates announcing that Marte was suffering from discomfort in his right side.

Chicago did not get a boost from the return of leadoff man Yoan Moncada, who was reinstated from the 10-day disabled list after recovering from a tight left hamstring.

Marte doubled and scored in the first inning but was removed from the game before his second at-bat in the third inning. Chicago is also 17-38 in their last 53 road games and 8-20 in Santiago's last 28 starts.

Santiago pitched one inning in relief in that two-game series last week, allowing no hits and striking out one. He'll be replacing RHP Carson Fulmer, whose scheduled start was pushed back to Saturday.

Pirates: Right-hander Jameson Taillon (2-3, 4.08 ERA) is expected to start Wednesday. He left his previous start Friday after three innings with a laceration on the middle finger of his right hand.
