Player Notes
Gerrit Cole yielded five runs over six and a third innings as the Pirates fell to the Cardinals on Monday.

Advice: Cole was spotted leads of 2-0 and 4-2, but Kolten Wong hit a pinch-hit homer off the righty to tie the game at 4-4 in the seventh. The fifth and final run on Cole's line came courtesy of the Pirate bullpen. It was a disappointing finish to a game that Cole had mostly controlled throughout. He struck out four and walked three, allowing eight hits over six and a third innings. This was Cole's third start since being sidelined with a lat injury on Independence Day. Cole's 2014 season has been mired by mediocre stretches early (4.38 ERA, .271 BAA in May) and two long DL stints. Despite the somewhat fractured year, he remains one of the best young pitchers in the game when healthy. He'll try to rebound from this start as he takes his 3.86 ERA and 1.30 WHIP into a match-up with the Cubs in his next go.

Pirates recalled RHP Gerrit Cole from rookie-level Bristol.

Advice: Cole was "optioned" after his last start as a procedural move so that the Pirates could have an extra bench bat in the days leading up to the September 1 expansion of rosters. Cole has been excellent since returning from a lat injury on August 20 and will face the rival Cardinals on Monday afternoon in St. Louis.

Pirates optioned RHP Gerrit Cole to Rookie League Bristol.

Advice: It's nothing more than a procedural move to get an extra bat on the bench for a couple of games. Cole will return to the Pirates when rosters expand on September 1.

Gerrit Cole struck out nine, allowing two runs over six innings in a no-decision against the Cardinals on Tuesday.

Advice: Cole didn't allow a hit until the sixth inning, and he'd kept the Cardinals off the scoreboard until the seventh -- and while both runs were charged to him, Cole wasn't around when either of the two runs scored. It was another promising start for the 23-year-old, who hasn't missed a beat since returning from a strained right lat muscle. Cole will look for some better luck in the win column when he meets the Cards in St. Louis on Monday.
