CHICAGO (AP) Pittsburgh Pirates second baseman and leadoff hitter Josh Harrison is missing a game against the Chicago Cubs because of a personal matter, according to manager Clint Hurdle.
A two-time All-Star, Harrison is batting .290 with two homers and 13 RBIs in 30 games. He missed five weeks because of a broken left pinkie before returning last month.
Sean Rodriguez started at second base and shortstop Jordy Mercer led off on Saturday. The Pirates had lost 10 of 13 games.
