Pirates roll to win over White Sox behind Williams

The Pittsburgh Pirates defeated the Chicago White Sox 7-0 last night at PNC Park. Sean Rodriguez replaced him in the field and lineup.

There was no immediate word on the severity of Marte's injury, though both players nearly certainly will be held out of the Wednesday 12:35 p.m. finale of this two-game series with Chicago.

White Sox: Left-handed pitcher Hector Santiago (0-1, 5.60 ERA) will make a spot start Wednesday in the series finale. Santiago has made two starts this season.

Sox: Second baseman Yoan Moncada (left hamstring tightness) was activated from the disabled list and went 1 for 4. He was 1-for-4. Marte appeared to tweak something in his torso while scoring on Josh Bell's double in the first inning, while Cervelli was hit on the inside of his right forearm by a Reynaldo López pitch in the third.

Santiago pitched one inning in relief in that two-game series last week, allowing no hits and striking out one.

Four days earlier, he gave up four runs and seven hits - including two home runs - in five innings before the Pirates rallied for a 6-5 win in Chicago. "So little different kind of scenario there".

For Taillon, the laceration on his finger is just his latest hiccup. "Hopefully we caught it early enough to where it won't bother me for the rest of the year or anything", Taillon said.

Trevor Williams had a better outing against the struggling Chicago White Sox this time while facing them for the second straight start. The Cubs and Cardinals are a game back.
