Game Thread: Cubs at Pirates, 9/3/20

The Pirates will try to salvage at least one game of this three-fer against the Cubs this afternoon at PNC Park. The game is scheduled to start at 1:35 p.m. EDT, but it’s been raining all morning here in the Burgh and forecasts are saying it’s going to be that way for most of the afternoon. AT&T SportsNet Pittsburgh will be broadcasting either the game or the umpteenth showing of this month’s Inside Pirates Baseball depending on the weather, and of course we’re open here for discussion, lineup complaints and creative GIF posting.

JT Brubaker (0-0, 4.50 ERA, 22 K) will be on the hill for the Bucs, while the Cubs will send up Alec Mills (3-2, 5.23 ERA, 24 K), who will pitch against the Pirates for the first time this season.
