PITCHING MATCHUP: Padres LH Joey Lucchesi (6-4, 3.74 ERA) vs. Pirates LH Steven Brault (3-1, 4.40)

Lucchesi matched his longest outing of the season last time out against Milwaukee, blanking the Brewers on three hits over seven innings to earn his third victory in his last four starts. The 26-year-old has permitted three runs or fewer in seven of his last eight turns, including a hard-luck loss against the Pirates on May 17 in which he allowed two runs on five hits over seven innings. Lucchesi has yet to win away from home, posting an 0-2 mark and 5.88 ERA in five starts.

Brault was hammered for six hits and nine runs at St. Louis on May 12 and followed that up by picking up the win in relief against the Padres six days later despite allowing two runs on four hits and four walks over 3 1/3 innings. He has turned a corner since then, permitting two runs or fewer in each of his five appearances, including six scoreless innings at Miami on June 14 to remain unbeaten since April 1. Brault is 0-1 with a 4.67 ERA in five home appearances (two starts).
