Pirates (61-41) at Marlins (39-63) 1:10 PM–Marlins Park, Miami MLB.com Gameday TV: ROOT The Bucs look for a series win this afternoon in Miami as they finish up their road trip. Pregame news; Tony Sanchez is in Miami, but hasn’t been activated yet. Russell Martin is in the lineup today despite not being 100%, and no decision has been made on Michael McKenry yet. The Bucs have 24 hours to decide what they will do with Sanchez. Andrew McCutchen is getting a scheduled day off today. Today’s starters… Gerrit Cole (5-3, 3.51) vs. Jose Fernandez (6-5, 2.74)  Cole looked great in his first post-ASB start and will look to make it two good ones in a row this afternoon against a bad Marlins club. Gerrit will be the only Bucco starter that won’t pitch in the upcoming St. Louis series, but he can still help the Bucs out next week by going deep today and keeping the bullpen fresh. Fernandez is one of the best pitchers in the league, as a rookie. He was on the All Star team and is the co-centerpiece of this young Fish club, along with Giancarlo Stanton. The Bucs are up against a tough task today, but it will be entertaining to see two of the best rookie arms in baseball go at it.
