Right-hander Chad Kuhl, completing his comeback season from Tommy John surgery, will start the Pirates’ final home game of the year as they host the Cubs on Thursday afternoon at PNC Park. Kuhl has had his ups and downs this season, primarily due to pitch counts and a finger abrasion that affected his command, but Pittsburgh is pleased overall with his return to the rotation. Right-hander Alec Mills will start for first-place Chicago. First pitch is set for 1:35 p.m. ET, and the action will be live on MLB.TV.
