Reds-Pirates Preview

(AP) -- While Jay Bruce is leading a productive stretch at the plate for the Cincinnati Reds, they're also enjoying a string of outstanding pitching performances as they continue to climb back to .500.

The visiting Reds will try to put up at least four runs in their 11th consecutive game Thursday when Tony Cingrani looks to help them take three of four from the slumping Pittsburgh Pirates.

Since suffering through a 4-for-35 stretch over an 11-game span, Bruce has rediscovered his stroke with 10 hits in 21 at-bats while knocking in a run in each of his last five contests. The two-time All-Star finished with two hits in Wednesday's 5-2 victory.
