Cubs, Pirates might mix and match players in last week

PITTSBURGH -- Pirates manager Clint Hurdle substituted freely and often as Pittsburgh's game against the Chicago Cubs wore on Monday night.

That had everything to do with the score -- Chicago built a 12-run lead en route to a 12-2 blowout win -- but the Pirates could soon find themselves wanting to rotate in a lot of players for a different reason.

Pittsburgh's "tragic number" for being eliminated from the National League wild-card race was reduced to two, meaning the Pirates could be out of a shot for the playoffs as early as Tuesday night when the teams play the second of a four-game series at PNC Park.
