RECENT TRENDS
NEWS

Covers Preview - The Pittsburgh Pirates have spent the last week gaining ground on the two teams they trail in the National League Central. The Pirates look to stymie the dwindling playoff hopes of the team directly behind them starting on Friday when they host the first of three games against the Cincinnati Reds. Pittsburgh fell behind NL Central leader Milwaukee by as many as seven games on Aug. 19, but shaved three games off that deficit following series wins against the Brewers and St. Louis Cardinals.
