THE SETUP

After having Wednesday off, the Pirates return to action looking to snap a six-game Grapefruit League losing streak.

Williams will be making his second start in a major-league exhibition game. Last Friday, he allowed three runs in three innings against the Blue Jays.

Also expected to pitch for the Pirates are Francisco Liriano, Nick Burdi, Clay Holmes and Brandon Maurer, who will be making his first appearance since Feb. 26 as he has been dealing with knee soreness.

Arrieta has allowed two runs in 4 2/3 innings in two starts while returning from offseason knee surgery.

Just a reminder: This file will not be as updated nearly as frequently as during regular-season games for a couple of reasons. One is that press box space is limited in most spring training facilities and reporters often aren't able to see the entire field, if at all. Second, players are available for interviews once they leave the game, meaning I will often be in the clubhouse at mid-game. Check the links above for play-by-play.
