Live Game Discussion: Pirates vs Cubs, 7:05 PM; Oliva Starts in Left Field

The Pittsburgh Pirates (15-39) take on the Chicago Cubs (32-22) in the second game of a four-game series at PNC Park. The Pirates lost 5-0 last night. Steven Brault will be on the mound tonight against veteran lefty Jose Quintana. Brault is coming off of his first career complete game. He has a 4.04 ERA in 35.2 innings, with 32 strikeouts and a 1.32 WHIP. Quintana has pitched just twice this year, both times in relief, with his last appearance coming on August 30th. He has allowed four runs in six innings.
