Pirates-Padres Preview

(AP) -- James Shields is off to one of the best starts of his 10-year career, but he still might have a hard time cooling off the Pittsburgh Pirates.

As the San Diego Padres' right-hander looks to go 7-0 for the first time, he'll try to keep the visiting Pirates from an eighth straight victory Friday night.

Jung Ho Kang's first-inning, three-run homer was one of three hit by Pittsburgh (25-22), during Thursday's 11-5 rout of San Diego. The Pirates have batted .319, averaged 10.7 hits and belted 10 home runs while outscoring their opponents 46-14 during the club's longest winning stretch since a nine-game run June 20-30, 2013.
