Pitchers: Gerrit Cole (5-3, 2.79) takes on Patrick Corbin (2-3, 3.99) in the series closer, looking to finish a sweep against the Snakes. The Cole Train has only had two bad starts out of eight, and has been on a roll lately, winning through either domination or determination. He split with Arizona last year, going 1-1/3.14. The Bucs rattled Corbin around pretty well in April, chasing him with three homers in the desert. He sometimes struggles with his control, and the Pirates like it like that.
