The White Sox are 20-41 in their last 61 Wednesday games and 15-38 in their last 53 during game two of a series.

The Pirates are now 9-2 in interleague play, including 3-0 against Chicago, while the White Sox are 1-7.

Pittsburgh built its 4-0 first-inning lead on Adam Frazier's homer, Josh Bell's two-run double and Colin Moran's RBI double.

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.

Marte exited Tuesday's game against the White Sox early with right side discomfort. There was no update on their status.

White Sox: 2B Yoan Moncada (left hamstring tightness) was activated from the disabled list and went 1 for 4. He was hit by a 93 miles per hour fastball in the bottom of the inning by Lopez.

Williams (5-2) struck out six and walked none in his longest outing of the season. He has had six games this season where he has gone five-plus innings with two or fewer earned runs allowed without earning a win, most in Major League Baseball this season. "I thought it was just two pitches that left the yard".

Fulmer was given extra rest after compiling a 6.23 ERA and 1.75 WHIP in 30 1/3 innings that include eight starts and one relief appearance. The Pirates jumped all over Lopez (0-3) after he had held them to two runs in 7 1/3 innings the last time out.

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.

"It's tough in the short term to come out of a game, but, hopefully, by coming out when I did, we've kind of mitigated it. ..."

Taillon, who has never faced the White Sox, pitched three scoreless innings with five strikeouts against the Giants before he had to leave. On Tuesday, Marte had one hit snd a run.
