Pirates-Brewers Preview

(AP) -- It was a mere 10 days ago that the Pittsburgh Pirates stood 1 1/2 games behind the first-place Milwaukee Brewers in the NL Central.

A seven-game losing streak contributed to that deficit currently standing at six, but Pittsburgh has a prime chance to make up some ground as it visits Miller Park for a three-game series beginning Friday night.

The Pirates' push for a second straight playoff appearance took a hit with their extended skid, though they snapped it with their 32nd comeback win of the season in Wednesday's 3-2 victory over Atlanta on Gaby Sanchez's walkoff sac fly.
