Pirates hope to keep good times rolling vs. Reds

The Pittsburgh Pirates apparently got tired of hearing their season effectively was over weeks ago. That they would be eager sellers rather than buyers at the trading deadline. That they were doomed to fail this season without the traded-away Gerrit Cole and Andrew McCutchen.

The Pirates kept their second-half surge going Saturday night, beating the Cincinnati Reds 6-2 for their eighth consecutive victory.

Now they will send a pitcher who is commanding of late to the mound Sunday to try to finish off the three-game sweep at Great American Ball Park.
