  • Preview: Reds at Pirates

    The Cincinnati Reds and Pittsburgh Pirates expected to contend for the National League Central title in 2014, but both are off to disappointing starts going into a four-game set starting Monday in Pittsburgh. The Pirates have lost eight of their last 10 after a 14-inning defeat against Milwaukee on Sunday. That brutal stretch includes dropping two of three last week to the Reds, who have needed to win four of their last five to offset a 3-8 start.The Pirates need to score some runs in support of Francisco Liriano, who has been hurt by a lack of run support as PIttsburgh has scored a total of four runs in his four starts. Liriano has dominated many of Cincinnati's top hitters as Brandon Phillips (3-for-18), Joey Votto (3-for-16, six strikeouts) and Jay Bruce (1-for-14, seven strikeouts) have been overmatched against him. Cincinnati's Mike Leake looks to continue his success against Pittsburgh - he has won his last four starts and his last five decisions against the Pirates.
