Left-hander Tom Gorzelanny (6-8, 6.82), making his second start since being recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis, will take the mound against the Milwaukee Brewers at 7:05 tonight at PNC Park, as the Pirates try to snap a season-long seven-game losing streak.
The Pirates are 1-8 against the Brewers this season, including a three-game sweep in Milwaukee last week. Andy LaRoche, stuck in an 0-for-27 skid, will start at third base for the Pirates. Dave Bush (8-9, 4.24) will start for the Brewers, who have won 15 of their past 21 road games and lead the Cardinals by 3.5 games in the NL wild card chase.
