by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Pirates announced Edinson Volquez has been tabbed as the starting pitcher for Wednesday's NL Wild Card game against the Giants. Volquez will be opposed by Giants left-handed hurler Madison Bumgarner.

Volquez led the Pirates' pitching staff this season in wins (13), innings pitched (192 2/3) and ERA (3.04). He finished the regular season with 18 straight scoreless innings and had a 1.08 ERA in September. He was 9-1 with a 1.85 ERA in his last 17 starts.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Pirates catcher Chris Stewart suffered a wrist injury in Sunday's 4-1 loss to the Reds after going 2 for 3 at the plate, but X-rays on the injured wrist came back negative, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Stewart indicated that the wrist was stiff and sore after the game. His availability for Wednesday's Wild Card matchup is in doubt, and regular starting catcher Russell Martin is also banged up.

Gerrit Cole strikes out 12 in Pirates loss Sunday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Pirates pitcher Gerrit Cole didn't factor into the decision Sunday, giving up one earned run on four hits in seven innings while striking out 12, but the Pirates fell 4-1 to the Reds to lose a chance at taking the NL Central title.

Cole did everything he needed to put the Pirates within a half-game of the Cardinals, but the bullpen betrayed the starter after he left the game with the score tied 1-1. The Pirates will face the Giants in the Wild Card game. Cole ends the regular season with a 3.65 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 138:40 K:BB ratio in 138 innings.
