Gamethread: Jeff Locke starts against the Cubs

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Game time is 7:05 pm.  The Pirates will still be without Starling Marte, in the wake of him getting hit in the arm with a pitch against the Phillies on Thursday.  In Clint Hurdle's words, “The level of competing is still minimal at best.”  I ran that through the online translator and got an error message that said something about "Enigma."  So you can try to figure out what that means, or just check out the lineup against yet another LHP, Felix Doubront.  (Is it me, or have the Pirates seen more LHPs in the last four weeks than they did in the first four months?)
