Pirates-Brewers Preview

(AP) -- The Pittsburgh Pirates inched closer to the NL Central-leading Milwaukee Brewers in the opener of this three-game set.

Making up more ground could prove difficult against Wily Peralta, who tries to become baseball's first 16-game winner Saturday night.

The Pirates (66-62) have followed a season-worst seven-game skid with back-to-back victories after winning 8-3 on Friday. Josh Harrison went 3 for 5 with a homer and a career-high five RBIs as Pittsburgh climbed within five games of Milwaukee.
