Phenom Gerrit Cole to Pitch Tuesday

The Pirates first round draft pick in 2011, Gerrit Cole, will make his major league debut for the Pirates on Tuesday, June 11.  Cole pitched well in Spring Training, and has a sub-3.00 ERA in AAA ball this year.  The Pirates starting rotation is a little thin due to injuries.  Cole, in a nice bit of dramatic flair, will be squaring off against former Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum of the San Francisco Giants. If you're coming to town for any reason, Tuesday's game would be a good bet for a memorable experience.  

Here's a Post-Gazette story on the much anticipated call up.
