Pirates hope to gain ground vs. Brewers

The Pittsburgh Pirates, trying to regain a foothold in the National League Central, have settled into a four-man outfield rotation that may not be altogether comfortable.

It's hard to say from game to game which three will start. The three who began the season -- left fielder Corey Dickerson, center fielder Starling Marte and Gregory Polanco in right -- started Monday in a 1-0 win over Milwaukee, but it's possible one of them will be replaced in the second game of the series Tuesday at PNC Park with rookie Austin Meadows, who has been strong offensively and defensively since being recalled last month and has played in all three outfield spots.

A lot of the sentiment surrounding the Pirates seems to lean toward Polanco sitting more often than not. He is batting .214 and has had some lapses defensively and on the bases. But the Pirates are steadfast in playing him.
