Pirates-Cardinals Preview

(AP) -- The Pittsburgh Pirates' offense has disappeared during a dismal stretch. They're hoping a matchup with Shelby Miller will help snap their slump.

Pittsburgh has fared well against him in the past and will try to turn things around Friday night against the St. Louis Cardinals at Busch Stadium.

The Pirates (9-14), losers of six of seven, have tallied two runs or fewer in four of five. They're coming off three straight losses to Cincinnati, getting limited to four runs and 16 hits while going 1 for 18 with runners in scoring position. Pedro Alvarez's first-inning RBI single in Thursday's 2-1 loss accounted for the lone hit in those situations.
