Pirates-Giants Preview

(AP) -- It was just 5 1/2 weeks ago when the Pittsburgh Pirates were under .500 and facing a large deficit in the NL Central.

Not long before that, the San Francisco Giants had a seemingly comfortable lead in the West.

The races look much different now as the surging Pirates look to complete a three-game road sweep by handing the Giants a seventh straight defeat Wednesday afternoon.
