Pittsburgh Pirates' Gerrit Cole Takes the loss Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gerrit Cole was tagged for four runs on six hits over five innings while striking out four and walking one in a losing effort against the Cubs on Wednesday night.

Dexter Fowler and Kyle Schwarber did all of the damage, going a combined 5-for-7 and working in tandem to plate all four runs on a pair of homers and an RBI single from Schwarber in the top of the first inning. The outing pushed Cole's career postseason ERA to 3.94 through three starts (16 innings). Cole's 2015 campaign was his best as a big leaguer, however, as he reached the 200 strikeouts milestone for the first time, and posted a 2.60 ERA while racking up 208 innings over 32 starts for the Bucs.

Reds RP Aroldis Chapman records four outs for 33rd save on Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cincinnati Reds closer Aroldis Chapman secured his 33rd save in Saturday's 3-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates , striking out two and not allowing a hit in 1 1/3 innings.

Chapman is putting the finishing touches on another season of dominating opposing hitters in the late innings, raising his strikeout rate to an eye-popping 42 percent after recording another two whiffs on Saturday. He has also turned in scoreless efforts in 10 out of his last 11 appearances. The 27-year-old has also now lowered his ERA for three successive seasons, with his current 1.66 mark representing his lowest total since the 1.51 figure he'd posted in 2012.

Pirates' Josh Harrison emerging from slump ahead of postseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pittsburgh Pirates utility man Josh Harrison went 2 for 3 with a triple and a run scored in Saturday's 3-1 loss to the Cincinnati Reds .

Harrison had come in to Saturday's contest in a 3-for-18 funk, so his first three-bagger of the season came at an opportune time. The 28-year-old has posted respectable offensive production in 2015, but his numbers are disappointing when compared to his 2014 campaign, even factoring in his 105 fewer plate appearances. Nevertheless, Harrison figures to be counted on during the Pirates' postseason run, however lengthy it may be.

Pirates SP A.J. Burnett loses final regular season start on Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pittsburgh Pirates starter A.J. Burnett (9-7) surrendered five hits, three earned runs and four walks in 6 2/3 innings in Saturday's 3-1 loss to the Cincinnati Reds . He struck out nine.

Burnett's final regular-season start turned out in disappointing fashion, although the 17-year veteran turned back the clock by recording nine whiffs, his second-highest total in a game in 2015. His spotty control Saturday led to four free passes and 107 pitches, his highest total in that category since a July 11 outing against the St. Louis Cardinals .

Burnett also uncharacteristically surrendered a homer for the third straight start, his longest streak by far in a campaign during which he has only given up 11 gopher balls overall. Although he was unable to help the Pirates clinch home-field advantage for their upcoming wild-card showdown versus the Chicago Cubs , Burnett would still figure to be a vital component of the Pirates' postseason pitching staff if they reach the Division Series.

Pirates keep 3B Pedro Alvarez out of Saturday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pittsburgh Pirates third baseman Pedro Alvarez is not in the lineup against the Cincinnati Reds on Saturday, Tom Singer of MLB.com reports.

Alvarez hasn't recorded a hit in his last four appearances and with lefty Brandon Finnegan set to take the mound for the Reds, Alvarez will take a seat in favor of Mike Morse who will hit sixth in the lineup and man first base.
