Alex Cobb, San Francisco the pick


The Pirates’ ship has been sinking since they were riding high early this season.

The Giants, who are in Pittsburgh this weekend, are on the playoff bubble.

They’re a couple of games back of the Dodgers and Snakes in the NL West and wild-card races.

Alex Cobb takes his turn Saturday after he shut out the Mariners for six innings in his last start.

He has made 16 starts and lost twice.

The Bucs’ Johan Oviedo has coughed up 13 runs in his last 11 ²/₃ innings and has lost six in a row.
