Nationals look to sweep slumping Pirates

The Washington Nationals go for a series sweep when they host the slumping Pittsburgh Pirates on Wednesday afternoon.

The Nationals, winners of three straight and six of eight, produced eighth-inning rallies to capture the first two games.

On Monday, Maikel Franco's two-run homer turned a 2-1 deficit into a 3-2 victory, and on Tuesday, Yadiel Hernandez smacked a two-run, pinch-hit double to break a tie and lead Washington to a 3-1 win.
