The Pittsburgh Pirates (50-69) take on the Los Angeles Angels (58-63) for three games, with the final game tonight at 8:07 PM. They will send out Chris Archer for the series finale today. Archer went six innings in his last start, allowing two runs against the St Louis Cardinals. In his previous outing against the New York Mets, he gave up one run over six innings. Archer has a devilishly poor 6.66 ERA in ten road starts. He has a 3.98 home ERA. The Angels will counter with 26-year-old lefty Dillon Peters, who has a 3.45 ERA in 31.1 innings, with 27 strikeouts and a 1.34 WHIP. He faced the Red Sox in Boston during his last start and allowed three runs over six innings. In one start and three relief outings, he has a 3.96 ERA at home, with a 1.68 WHIP and a .319 BAA.
