Reds-Pirates Preview

(AP) -- The perfect draw for a struggling pitching staff right now might be the Cincinnati Reds' slumping lineup. The right matchup to keep offensive production flowing may be their pitchers, too.

The Pittsburgh Pirates will get another crack at both Saturday night when they go for their sixth straight win while trying to hand the visiting Reds as many losses in a row.

Both sides of the equation held up in Pittsburgh's series-opening 4-1 victory Friday night, its third straight at PNC Park. Home runs from Josh Harrison and Matt Joyce were more than enough as the Pirates (14-9) held the Reds to six hits.
