Dodgers (29-38) at Pirates (40-28) 1:35 PM–PNC Park, Pittsburgh MLB.com Gameday TV: ROOT, TBS The Bucs and Dodgers battle in a rubber match this afternoon on a rainy Father’s Day in Pittsburgh. Pregame news: Brandon Cumpton will start again on Thursday, his next scheduled turn in the rotation. Starling Marte is still out. Russell Martin was scratched with a lower body injury. Today’s starters… Zack Greinke (3-1, 3.68) vs. Gerrit Cole (1-0, 2.84) Greinke represents another big test for the Pirate offense. The big-money righty has been solid for the Dodgers so far this year (when healthy) but has also been in the middle of two big brawls. The Pirates have enough injuries to deal with so hopefully there are no more fireworks today. Cole is making his second start after an impressive first one that received plenty of fanfare. Everyone is surely looking forward to seeing him again, and the Pirates are going to rely on him a bit now that their two veteran starters are on the DL. It’ll be interesting to see if he goes to his changeup and curve/slider more often – he was mostly pounding his fastball (which worked just fine for the most part) in his first game. Bucs vs. Greinke
