The Pittsburgh Pirates and Washington Nationals will resume a four-game series when they square off at PNC Park in Pittsburgh on Tuesday night.

Pittsburgh in the pits

While Washington leads the National League wild-card race and trails first-place Atlanta by five games in the NL East, the Pirates have fallen apart since the all-star break with seven victories in the last 35 contests. Rookie Bryan Reynolds had one of the four hits for Pittsburgh in the series opener and leads the team with a .326 batting average while teammate Starling Marte saw his six-game hitting streak end. Marte, though, is 12-for-27 over his past seven contests.

Right-hander Chris Archer, who has not earned a victory since June 6, is taking the mound for Pittsburgh on Tuesday. Archer (3-9, 5.23 ERA) has pitched better this month while registering a 3.18 ERA with 25 strikeouts over 17.0 innings and three starts, but his winless streak has reached 12 contests. The 30-year-old two-time all-star gave up four runs (three earned) over 5.0 innings and matched a season high with 10 strikeouts in a loss at the Angels last Wednesday. Adam Eaton is 7-for-15 with a double against Archer, who limited Washington to one run over seven innings in a no-decision April 13.
