Pirates-Cardinals Preview

(AP) -- The Pittsburgh Pirates' season ended in St. Louis a year ago.

That won't happen Wednesday at Busch Stadium, but another defeat would severely hamper Pittsburgh's hopes of winning the NL Central.

These division rivals meet for the final time in the regular season, with the Cardinals searching for a fifth straight win and three-game sweep that would push the third-place Pirates five games behind them.
