Pirates' Cole, Cervelli leave game with injuries

PITTSBURGH (AP) Pittsburgh Pirates right-hander Gerrit Cole left Friday night's game with the St. Louis Cardinals in the third inning with right triceps tightness. Catcher Francisco Cervelli left after the next inning with a sore right hand.

Cole was removed after giving up a leadoff single to Matt Carpenter. He was relieved by AJ Schugel after not allowing a run in two-plus innings. He gave up two hits and one walk while walking three.

Cervelli left after swinging at the first pitch of his at-bat from Michael Wacha.

Chris Stewart pinch-hit for Cervelli and remained in the game at catcher.
