The fans at PNC Park will be treated to a game between the Chicago Cubs and the Pittsburgh Pirates when they take their seats on Wednesday.

The Cubs will pin their hopes on the pitching of left hander Jon Lester in this game. Lester has a 0-0 record and a 2.66 ERA this season.

It’ll be Tyler Glasnow toeing the rubber for the Pirates in this contest. Right hander Glasnow is 0-1 with a 7.94 ERA so far this season.

Lester surrendered five runs on a season-high nine hits over 5 2/3 innings at Cincinnati in his last outing. He permitted two runs on 14 hits over his first three starts but Chicago scored seven runs in that span. The 33-year-old Lester was 2-1 with a 3.80 ERA in four starts against Pittsburgh last season, but he lasted only three innings and gave up five runs in his last start at PNC Park.

Glasnow will be making his 11th career appearance and eighth start in his search to notch his first major league win. The 23-year-old Glasnow lasted 4 2/3 innings at the New York Mets on Friday, giving up three runs (one earned) on seven hits, after allowing four first-inning runs and six total at Chicago in his previous turn. Glasnow has yet to pitch beyond 5 1/3 innings in his career.

Oddsmakers currently have the Cubs listed as 163-moneyline favorites versus the Pirates, while the game’s total is sitting at 8.

Left-hander Jon Lester will attempt to bounce back from his worst outing of the season and give his team its third straight quality start when the visiting Chicago Cubs wrap up a three-game series at the Pittsburgh Pirates on Wednesday night. Chicago has won six of seven and will look to complete a three-game sweep of the Pirates.

Lester turned in his best performance against the Pirates in Chicago on April 16, limiting them to three hits over seven innings before his bullpen surrendered six runs. The Cubs amassed 53 runs over a six-game span following a 14-3 win in the series opener, but made an unearned run stand up in Tuesday’s 1-0 triumph — Chicago’s first victory without an RBI since July 2011. Pittsburgh’s hard-luck loss came hours after Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred revealed that Pirates star center fielder Starling Marte declined to appeal last week’s 80-game suspension. Since a three-game sweep of the Cubs in Chicago, Pittsburgh has dropped six of its last eight games.
