Pirates aim for third straight win over Cubs

With a win Thursday, the Pittsburgh Pirates can pick up their third straight victory and win their four-game series with the visiting Chicago Cubs.

That would be no small feat for Pittsburgh (17-39), which had lost five straight and 13 of 15 before picking up a second straight win Wednesday, 2-1.

The Pirates are playing for pride and to make an impression on management in the final days of this shortened season, while the Cubs (32-24) sit in first place in the National League Central and are headed for the playoffs.
