Reds-Pirates Preview

(AP) -- If the Pittsburgh Pirates are going to further their surge into the thick of the NL Central and wild-card races, they're going to have to beat the pitcher who has had their number this year - and seemingly every year.

The Pirates go for a sweep of Johnny Cueto and the Cincinnati Reds on Sunday when the division rivals conclude their three-game series at PNC Park.

Pittsburgh (71-64) has moved within two games of Milwaukee in the Central and is part of a four-team logjam vying for the two NL wild-card spots after beating Cincinnati 3-2 on Saturday. It was a season high-tying fourth straight win for the Pirates, who watched Vance Worley and three relievers make Neil Walker's first-inning three-run homer stand.
