Pirates, Cubs close out season series

PITTSBURGH -- The Pittsburgh Pirates play their final home game of the season Thursday, and it's a proposition welcomed by them only because they won't play the Chicago Cubs again until 2017.

For the first time since 2012, there will be no autumnal postseason baseball in Pittsburgh that Pirates fans like to refer to as Buctober, and the Cubs are greatly the reason why.

The Pirates will wrap up an unsatisfying 2016 season at PNC Park, where they are 38-42, including a 5-17 record in their last 22 home games. It's been quite the turnaround, given that the Pirates (192 home wins since 2013) trail only the Los Angeles Dodgers (200) and St. Louis Cardinals (194) in home wins since the 2013 season.
