At AT&T Park
Game time: 10:15PM ET
Probable starters:
PIT: Gerrit Cole (7-7, 4.18 ERA)
SF: Matt Cain (3-8, 5.49 ERA)

Quote:
The Pirates and Giants open a three-game series Monday night at AT&T Park. The two teams met earlier this season, with the Giants sweeping all three games on June 30 to July 2.

Gerrit Cole (7-7, 4.18 ERA) will take the mound for the Pirates, facing the Giants for the sixth time in his career. Cole is coming off one of his best starts of the season, giving up one run and striking out a season-high 10 batters in a no-decision vs. the Brewers last Wednesday.

For the Giants, veteran righty Matt Cain (3-8, 5.49 ERA) makes his 20th start of the season. Cain has struggled for most of the year, but turned in one of his better starts his last time out, giving up three runs in six innings of work against the Indians.

This series is a re-hash of the 2014 National League Wild Card Game, in which the Giants shut out the Pirates, 8-0, behind a complete game from Madison Bumgarner.

Three things to know about this game

• Cain has thrown only 8.6 percent of his pitches in the upper third of the strike zone this season, compared with the MLB average of 11 percent. That's probably for the best, as when Cain's pitches have wound up there, opponents have gone 16-for-40 (.400) with three home runs and a .725 slugging percentage.

• Cole faced the Giants the last time these teams squared off and got pummeled. He gave up seven runs, tying a season-high, in 5 1/3 innings on June 30. Before that start, Cole had been solid against the Giants, and had given up just three earned runs in 22 innings in his previous three starts.

• Andrew McCutchen and David Freese are the only two Pirates with at least 10 at-bats vs. Cain. McCutchen is 5-for-21 lifetime with a double and home run, while Freese is 2-for-10.

Cutch goes yard for a three run bomb. Bucs up 6 to zip in the 2nd inning. Now Bochy has been tossed.
