RECENT TRENDS
NEWS

Covers Preview - The Cincinnati Reds and Pittsburgh Pirates expected to contend for the National League Central title in 2014, but both are off to disappointing starts going into a four-game set starting Monday in Pittsburgh. The Pirates have lost eight of their last 10 after a 14-inning defeat against Milwaukee on Sunday. That brutal stretch includes dropping two of three last week to the Reds, who have needed to win four of their last five to offset a 3-8 start.
