Pirates-Mariners preview

SEATTLE -- Misery loves company.

Two teams with dying pennant aspirations will meet at Safeco Field under similar circumstances Tuesday night. The Pittsburgh Pirates and Seattle Mariners have fallen from baseball's elite and are just trying to stay afloat in the playoff race.

The Pirates (37-40) were trying to keep pace with the National League Central-leading Chicago Cubs, baseball's hottest team, through April and May and were doing a decent job of weathering the storm. The Pirates were in position to make a run at the end of May, but they've since fallen three games under .500. Monday afternoon's loss to the Dodgers left Pittsburgh with an 8-18 record in June.
