Marlins-Pirates Preview

(AP) -- Behind a string of outstanding performances from their red-hot rotation, the suddenly surging Pittsburgh Pirates are on the verge of their longest home winning streak since July.

Gerrit Cole began the run with arguably the best start of his young career, an effort he'll try to build on against the Miami Marlins on Wednesday night when the Pirates go after their sixth straight victory.

Following a 1-6 stretch, Pittsburgh starters have posted a 1.06 ERA during a winning streak that's given the club a chance to move two games over .500 for the first time since sitting 12-10 on April 29.
