Pirates-Brewers Preview

(AP) -- The Pittsburgh Pirates have moved up their top starter with an eye on the best team in baseball this weekend.

Gerrit Cole and the Pirates have good reason to be concerned about first meeting the lowly Milwaukee Brewers given how Jimmy Nelson has dominated them.

The Pirates were swept in their last visit to Miller Park and have been stymied by Nelson as they send Cole to the mound to start this three-game set Tuesday night.
