He has made 31 career starts at PNC Park, posting a 13-8 record with a 2.75 ERA. Nova (0-0, 4.22 ERA), who pitched for the Chicago White Sox last season, has made two starts for the Tigers. In his last outing on July 30, he gave up two runs on eight hits in 5 2/3 innings against Kansas City.

Veteran left-hander Derek Holland (0-0, 4.76 ERA) will start for the Pirates. He has pitched 5 2/3 innings in each of his starts this season but does not have a decision.
