Pirates fall again, playoff hopes dim with loss to Nats

PITTSBURGH (AP) A season that's spiraled away from the Pittsburgh Pirates spilled into frustration Sunday.

On the edge of elimination from the playoff race with a 10-7 loss to Washington, the Pirates got into a bench-clearing skirmish after Nationals star Bryce Harper injured his left thumb trying to avoid a fake tag by third baseman Jung Ho Kang.

The Pirates are five games behind in the NL wild-card race with a week left.
