Reds-Pirates Preview

(AP) -- Although the Pittsburgh Pirates and Cincinnati Reds haven't played their best baseball through the first month, the Reds can draw on success in the season series when the teams meet Tuesday night to open a three-game set.

Pittsburgh, on the other hand, will be playing at home - a comfort that could turn the tide for the Pirates after a disheartening road swing.

Pittsburgh (12-13) was swept at Cincinnati (12-13) in three games to open the year and is coming off its second winless series of the season, having dropped three consecutive extra-inning games to St. Louis.
