Pirates-Braves Preview

(AP) -- Since Francisco Liriano was hit hard by the Atlanta Braves last month, he's been especially stingy.

Looking to continue their playoff push, Liriano and the Pittsburgh Pirates open a season-ending seven-game road trip Monday night in Atlanta.

Pittsburgh (84-71) climbed 4 1/2 games ahead of Milwaukee for the second wild-card spot after taking two of three from the Brewers over the weekend. Russell Martin provided all the offense with an RBI single in the seventh inning in Sunday's 1-0 victory, the Pirates' 13th in 16 games.
