Pirates Daily: Can Bucs Shock Brewers, Burnes?



Pittsburgh Pirates

Monday, Aug. 29 the Pittsburgh Pirates (48-79) start a three-game road series against the Milwaukee Brewers (48-79) at Miller Park.

The Pirates are coming off of a 5-0 victory over the Phillies in Philadelphia that snapped a seven-game losing streak.

The game will air on AT&T Sportsnet Pittsburgh and 93.7 The Fan and first pitch is scheduled for 8:10 p.m. ET.


With JT Brubaker being placed on the paternity leave list Saturday, the Pirates have yet to announce a starter for Monday night

The Pirates will have to go up against a tough righty, Corbin Burnes (9-6, 2.84 ERA), last year’s National League Cy Young Award winner. Burnes’ last outing for the Brewers saw him go just 3.2 innings and give up seven earned runs on eight hits against the Dodgers.
