Pirates-Diamondbacks Preview

(AP) -- Josh Harrison and Jordy Mercer aren't among the top sluggers on the Pirates, but they're carrying Pittsburgh's offense while star Andrew McCutchen has struggled.

That tandem hopes to keep swinging the bat well while McCutchen looks to turn things around Thursday night when the Pirates open a four-game road series with the Arizona Diamondbacks.

One day after taking a one-half game lead for the NL's second wild-card spot and climbing within one game of Central-leading Milwaukee, the Pirates (57-50) had their three-game win streak end in Wednesday's 7-5 loss at San Francisco.
