8/26/2015 | Cole looks to end August strong in finale vs. Marlins

While the 24-year-old Gerrit Cole -- a former Pirates top prospect -- quickly established himself as a top-end starter in the Pittsburgh rotation, the Marlins are hoping 23-year-old rookie Justin Nicolino -- their No. 3 prospect according to MLBPipeline.com -- can soon do the same. They'll square off in the series finale Thursday night at Marlins Park.


8/26/2015 | Pirates ride six-run 2nd to get by Marlins

8/26/2015 | Bucs looking for flexibility with September callups

8/25/2015 | Bucs can't match outfielders in holding runners

8/25/2015 | Cutch compares favorably to greats at 1K mark

Andrew McCutchen played in his 1,000th career game on Monday night -- and marked it in style with a two-run double that started the Bucs toward a 5-2 victory over the Marlins in Miami -- a nice round number that offers a convenient opportunity to compare.


8/25/2015 | Polanco continues hot streak in win over Marlins

The last time the Pirates came to Marlins Park, Gregory Polanco announced his presence with authority. He swatted five hits in one night, ripped a game-winning homer and tortured Miami's pitching all series. It was perhaps the best Polanco has looked at the big league level -- until now, that is. Polanco started hitting in early July and hasn't stopped since. He kept raking Monday night in his return to Marlins Park, piling up four hard hits in the Pirates' 5-2 win.


8/24/2015 | Caminero diversifies pitching arsenal

Four Pirates relievers contributed a typical 3 2/3 one-hit shutout innings to Sunday night's 5-2 victory over the Giants. Their efforts stretched the bullpen's latest prolonged mastery to three earned runs allowed in 36 2/3 innings. That's the equivalent of an ERA of 0.74.


8/23/2015 | Bucs overcome 3 errors for series win vs. Giants

The Pirates beat the Giants, 5-2, on Sunday night despite a series of physical and mental errors in the middle innings. After two fielding errors by first baseman Pedro Alvarez and a throwing error by second baseman Neil Walker gifted the Giants with two runs to trim the Bucs' lead to 3-2, homers by Andrew McCutchen in the sixth and Alvarez in the seventh restored order.

8/23/2015 | Bucs bring Happ to extend dominance over Fish

Swept by the Pirates in a three-game series in late May at PNC Park, the Marlins look to play the role of spoiler against Pittsburgh, beginning Monday night at Marlins Park. The four-game set begins at 7:10 p.m. ET, with Miami going with Tom Koehler, while the Pirates counter with lefty J.A. Happ.


8/22/2015 | Seeking 'another level,' Kang hits two homers

8/22/2015 | Pirates' Glasnow fans nine in first Triple-A win

Tyler Glasnow picked up his first Triple-A win Saturday afternoon, going 6 1/3 scoreless innings while striking out nine hitters as Indianapolis took down Charlotte, 6-0.


8/22/2015 | Marte's leap steals home run from Giants

Starling Marte may have come up with the first early wedding present for Gerrit Cole's upcoming marriage to Amy Crawford: robbing the Pirates pitcher's future brother-in-law of a home run.


8/22/2015 | On-the-rise Pirates getting national play
