Cole, Hendricks get rematch as Pirates host Cubs

PITTSBURGH -- The 2017 season is young, but a pitching rematch will take place Tuesday when the Chicago Cubs' Kyle Hendricks faces the Pittsburgh Pirates' Gerrit Cole at PNC Park.

Cole won the first confrontation, a 4-2 decision on April 14 at Wrigley Field. It was a solid outing for the big right-hander, and a much-needed one after he started the season with poor starts against the Boston Red Sox on Opening Day and vs. the Atlanta Braves six days later.

Trying to rebound from an injury-marred 2016 season, during which he twice went on the disabled list, Cole gave up eight runs in 11 innings over his first two starts.
