Pirates pitchers look to regain control against Tigers

Walks have been a major issue for the Pittsburgh Pirates' pitching staff.

Right-handed starter Joe Musgrove knows that all too well after losing his first three starts in part because he walked 11 batters in 14 2/3 innings.

Musgrove was hoping to improve on that Sunday, but he will have to wait a bit longer after a sore right ankle will prevent him from making his scheduled start when the Detroit Tigers face the Pirates in the finale of a three-game series at Pittsburgh's PNC Park.
