Duke Looks To Bounce Back

Zach Duke looks to rebound in his start on Wednesday night against Houston at PNC Park. After a couple of quality starts the Pirates' young lefty has been rocked in his last two outings and has seen his ERA rise to 9.00. PiratesDugout.com's George Von Benko spoke with Duke recently.

GVB-- Zach you came out of spring training in good shape and lately things have gone bad. Is there any rhyme or reason for what has happened?

ZD-- There's some factors, but it's to the point where I feel like I'm back in control. There should be some different results soon.

To hear the rest of George Von Benko's interview with Pirates' pitcher Zach Duke.
