KEY GAME INFORMATION
ATLANTA: 2017 72-90, third place
MANAGER Brian Snitker (third season)
ADDITIONS: RHP Brandon McCarthy, RHP Anibal Sanchez, LHP Scott Kazmir, INF Charlie Culberson, OF Preston Tucker, OF Ronald Acuna, 3B Austin Riley, OF Jeff Decker, 2B Christian Colon, RHP Shane Carle
SUBTRACTIONS: OF Matt Kemp, RHP R.A. Dickey, 3B Adonis Garcia, 1B Matt Adams, INF Jace Peterson, RHP Jason Motte
OUTLOOK: Teheran, Foltynewicz and Newcomb have provided reasons this spring to believe they can improve their 2017 numbers. For a change, the spring spotlight was on a position player; Acuna was hitting .432 with 4 home runs, 11 RBI and 4 steals when he was sent to minor league camp. The move involving the 20-year-old top prospect was expected. It was made to maintain an extra full season of contractual control down the road, but Acuna likely will be recalled in April and immediately start in left field. He could provide a needed power bat to help Freeman in the middle of the lineup. The Braves likely are still at least a year away from contending in the NL East, but improved starting pitching could push them closer to .500 this year.
PITTSBURGH: 2017 75-87, fourth place
MANAGER Clint Hurdle (seventh season)
ADDITIONS: OF Corey Dickerson, LHP Kyle Crick, RHP Joe Musgrove, RHP Michael Feliz, 3B Colin Moran
SUBTRACTIONS: CF Andrew McCutchen, RHP Gerrit Cole, RHP Daniel Hudson, C Chris Stewart, 1B John Jaso, RHP Joaquin Benoit
OUTLOOK: General Manager Neal Huntington insists the Pirates are not rebuilding, but it certainly looks that way after they flipped franchise cornerstones McCutchen and Cole for less expensive and less proven talent. The Pirates did nothing in free agency, though they were able to grab Dickerson -- an All-Star for Tampa Bay last season -- in February. Dickerson's arrival gives Pittsburgh some stability in the outfield, but the Pirates still have some serious power issues outside of Bell, who finished third in NL Rookie of the Year voting. Pittsburgh finished 29th in the majors in home runs in 2017, and while McCutchen and Dickerson's numbers are comparable, the rest of the lineup isn't exactly imposing. If Marte can put his suspension-marred 2017 behind him, if Polanco and his hamstrings can stay healthy, if Moran proves he can do more than spell Freese at third, and if Taillon, Kuhl and Williams all improve, Pittsburgh could be competitive. That's a lot of "ifs," probably a few too many.
PREVIEW
Pirates hope offense wakes up vs. Braves
 

The opener of a three-game series between the Atlanta Braves and the Pittsburgh Pirates was as tight as could be, yet left the clubs in opposing spots going into the second game Tuesday at PNC Park.

In the teams' first meeting of the season, Atlanta got a feel-good 1-0 win behind five scoreless innings from Bryse Wilson in the right-hander's major league debut. He was promoted from Triple-A Gwinnett to make a spot start and help the rotation to be a little fresher with everyone being moved back a day.

The Braves (69-55), who were able to put a four-game weekend sweep by Colorado in the rear-view mirror, moved a game up on Philadelphia in the National League East.

"Big," Atlanta manager Brian Snitker said of winning a close game after the losing streak. "Because there were a couple others it seemed like we were an out away from winning, probably three out of the (previous) four. You go through it. It happens, and (the win Monday) was big."

The Pirates (63-63), meanwhile, fell back to .500, six games out of a wild-card spot. They had won two in a row but have three 1-0 losses in their past five games.

Pittsburgh has scored just five runs in those five games, wasting some strong pitching performances as they have allowed one run in each of the five games.

"I think we'd all like to score runs," Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said. "From that standpoint, guys are up their battling."

A couple of things add both injury and insult to the Pirates' lot lately.

Monday starter Chris Archer left after four innings because of left leg pain stemming from the third inning, when he corkscrewed awkwardly while striking out at the plate.

Pittsburgh already was without second baseman Josh Harrison, who has a sore hamstring he got running to first Sunday. Center fielder Starling Marte was benched Monday for lacking hustle twice on the base paths and drawing boos from the home fans Sunday, although Marte was used as a pinch-hitter in the ninth Monday. He grounded out.

"I just encouraged him (about) effort. It's always about effort," Hurdle said of his huddle with Marte about his benching.

Atlanta's Kevin Gausman (7-9, 4.22 ERA), who originally was expected to start Monday, now will go Tuesday. He will face Pittsburgh right-hander Ivan Nova (7-7, 4.26 ERA).

Gausman is 0-1 with an 8.44 ERA against Pittsburgh. In 10 2/3 innings against the Pirates last year with Baltimore, he gave up 10 runs.

This season, he has won two starts in a row and three in his past four, giving up eight runs and six walks, with 17 strikeouts. That includes going 2-1 with a 2.84 ERA since he joined the Braves from Baltimore.

Nova has won three of his past four decisions and five of his past seven, but was victimized by a seemingly contagious lack of run support his last time out during a four-game series against the Cubs when Pittsburgh scored just five runs.

On Thursday, the only run Nova gave up came on a solo home run in 6 2/3 innings, along with seven hits, three strikeouts and -- for the 11th time this season -- no walks, but Pittsburgh lost 1-0.

"I thought he pitched a really good game," Hurdle said of Nova. "He used his complete arsenal."

Nova's lifetime numbers against the Braves are strong: 3-0 with a 1.69 ERA in three starts.
