Cole v Gallardo

Gerrit Cole (6-6, 3.81) takes on Yovani Gallardo (9-9, 4.61) tonight.  Cole will be making a second straight start on seven days' rest as the Bucs try to nurse him through the dog days. Gallardo will be making his third start since coming off the DL after a hamstring injury and was pretty solid in both outings.

The game begins at 7:05 and will be aired on Root Sports and 93.7 The Fan.

Pirate lineup: Jose Tabata LF, Neil Walker 2B, Andrew McCutchen CF, Pedro Alvarez 3B, Marlon Byrd RF, Gaby Sanchez 1B, John Buck C, Jordy Mercer SS and Gerrit Cole P.

Hmmm...getting serious with Garrett Jones, sitting against a RHP. John Buck gets his first Bucco start

Brewer lineup: Scooter Gennett 2B, Jean Segura SS, Jonathan Lucroy C, Aramis Ramirez 3B, carlos Gomez CF, Khris Davis LF, Caleb Gindl RF, Ben Francisco 1B and Yovani Gallardo P.

  • The Pirates, who were brilliant in closing out series earlier in the season, have lost their last five series concluding games.
  • Bryan Morris (5-7) has taken the most relief losses in a single season since Matt Capps went 4-8 in 2009.
