Reds-Pirates Preview

(AP) -- The Pittsburgh Pirates have begun to improve on an uninspiring divisional record during their current 15-game stretch against NL Central foes.

After series wins against the two teams ahead of them in the division, they'll now try to keep the Cincinnati Reds at a comfortable distance Friday night when the teams open a three-game series at PNC Park.

Pittsburgh (69-64) took two of three in Milwaukee before returning home and capturing two of three against St. Louis with Wednesday's 3-1 victory. Still, the team is just 26-32 within the Central.
