Pirates-Giants Preview

(AP) -- On a staff that includes the electric Gerrit Cole, no member of the Pittsburgh Pirates' rotation has been better than A.J. Burnett.

Following his first rough outing of the season, Burnett will look to regain his top form Tuesday night against the San Francisco Giants.

Pittsburgh (27-24) opened its series in San Francisco (30-23) on a high note behind Cole, who threw seven innings and allowed five hits and two unearned runs while striking out nine.
