Cole (7-9) started strong, recording a 1-2-3 inning in the first for the first time since April 21. From there he struggled, starting with a second inning two run homer by Evan Gattis.

Nova (3-0) has become a reliable starter for the Pirates since being picked up at the trade deadline.

The loss continued the trend of the Pirates’ offense not producing despite quality outings from the starters.

Josh Bell went 1-3 with a sacrifice fly in his first big league start. His hit was a sixth inning two-out single, but he was thrown out trying to extend it to a double.

Excluding Harrison, the rest of the Pirates’ lineup went 1-27, striking out 14 times. Six of those strikeouts were looking.

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, halfback Le’Veon Bell and wide receiver Markus Wheaton were among the Steelers starters who did not participate in the contest.
