The Pittsburgh Pirates and the San Francisco Giants will both be trying to pick up a win on Wednesday when they battle at AT&T Park.

The Pirates will pin their hopes on the pitching of right hander Trevor Williams in this game. Williams has a 4-4 record and a 4.84 ERA this season.

It’ll be Jeff Samardzija toeing the rubber for the Giants in this contest. Right hander Samardzija is 4-11 with a 5.05 ERA so far this season.

Williams settled in after a shaky start Friday against Colorado and earned the win after allowing five runs over 6 2/3 innings. The 25-year-old San Diego native has posted a 4.21 ERA in his last 13 outings since giving up eight runs (six earned) over three frames in his first start on May 8 against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Williams pitched well against San Francisco on July 2, giving up two runs on three hits over six innings before the Giants rallied for a 5-3 victory.

Samardzija is looking to get untracked after allowing a total of 12 runs on 17 hits over 10 1/3 innings in back-to-back losses to San Diego. The 32-year-old has made 20 starts but has just four wins, including one against Pittsburgh on July 2 when he allowed two runs over six frames. Andrew McCutchen is 15-for-37 against Samardzija, who is 5-4 with a 2.91 ERA in 24 career games (13 starts) against the Pirates.

Oddsmakers currently have the Giants listed as 142-moneyline favorites versus the Pirates, while the game’s total is sitting at 8.

The Pittsburgh Pirates appear to have a glaring need in right field due to Gregory Polanco’s strained left hamstring, but general manager Neal Huntington isn’t about to panic. While Huntington continues to monitor the trade market, the Pirates’ immediate focus is on Wednesday’s rubber match of their three-game series against the host San Francisco Giants.

Jameson Taillon allowed 10 runs (nine earned) over three innings in Tuesday’s 11-3 loss as the Pirates fell 3 1/2 games back of first-place Milwaukee in the National League Central and 7 1/2 games out of the second wild-card spot. The Pirates have lost three of their last four games while using the trio of John Jaso, Adam Frazier and Jose Osuna in place of Polanco, who is expected to miss several weeks but hopes to return sooner. The Giants are a dismal 39-63 and began planning for the future on Tuesday with the trade of Eduardo Nunez to Boston in exchange for minor-league pitchers Shaun Anderson and Gregory Santos. “Eduardo just did a nice job for us,” manager Bruce Bochy told reporters. “He was a lot of fun to have around on the club. I’m going to miss him, because this guy was exciting, he gave me a lot of options with his versatility, and he played the game with a passion.”

Last time out for San Francisco, they were a 11-3 winner as they battled the Pirates on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Giants at -103 were rewarded, while the 14 combined runs moved the game OVER for totals bettors.

Pittsburgh lost its last outing, a 11-3 result against the Giants on July 25. Bettors who backed the Giants at -103 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (14) sent OVER bettors to the payout window.
