The Tampa Bay Rays and the Pittsburgh Pirates will both be gunning for a victory on Tuesday when they meet at PNC Park in an interleague contest.

The Rays will trot Alex Cobb out to the mound in this one. Right hander Cobb has a 6-5 record and a 4.05 ERA this season.

The Pirates will counter Cobb with Trevor Williams. Right hander Williams has a 5.09 ERA to go along with a 3-3 record this season.

Cobb was lit up for nine runs and 14 hits in five innings at Seattle on June 3 but was a completely different pitcher over his last three turns. The 29-year-old surrendered a total of five earned runs in 19 2/3 innings in those outings while grabbing a pair of wins. Cobb lost his lone previous start against Pittsburgh but is 9-3 with a 2.79 ERA in 14 career interleague starts.

Williams made the conversion from reliever to starter and is trying to find some consistency in his new role. The 25-year-old struck out seven while allowing three runs in six innings at Milwaukee on Wednesday but was reached for a total of eight runs while striking out six over nine innings in his previous two turns. Williams is making his first career appearance against an American League opponent.

Oddsmakers currently have the Pirates listed as 106-moneyline favorites versus the Rays, while the game’s total is sitting at 9½.

The Pittsburgh Pirates are looking for small signs of improvement as they try to climb out of an early-season hole and have a chance to inch closer to .500 with a solid homestand. The Tampa Bay Rays, who visit the Pirates for the start of a three-game interleague series on Tuesday, are embarking on a eight-game road trip before closing the first half with four at home against the Boston Red Sox.

Pittsburgh had a chance to finish off its road trip with a sweep of the St. Louis Cardinals before letting a 4-2 lead slip away and is trying to keep a positive attitude. “It’s a good step forward,” Pirates manager Clint Hurdle told reporters of taking two of three from the Cardinals. “Nothing’s major right now. We’re working hard to play better. (Sunday), we didn’t finish. We had two bad innings. To come in here and win two of three, we’ll take it and we’ll move on.” The Rays endured a frustrating end to their series over the weekend as well, allowing four runs in the final two innings to drop an 8-5 decision in the rubber match against the Baltimore Orioles. The Rays will try to bounce back behind right-hander Alex Cobb while the Pirates counter righty Trevor Williams.

Last time out for Pittsburgh, they were a 8-4 loser as they battled the Cardinals on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Cardinals at -147 were rewarded, while the 12 combined runs moved the game OVER for totals bettors.

Tampa Bay was a 8-5 loser in its last match on the road against the Orioles. They lost as -151 favorites, while the total score of 13 made winners of OVER bettors.
