Pirates-Cubs preview

CHICAGO -- A National League division title might almost be out of reach for the Pittsburgh Pirates, but they remain alive for October's postseason party.

The Pirates (67-61) are in the thick of the NL wild-card chase after a 3-1 victory on Sunday and four-game sweep of the Milwaukee Brewers.

Pittsburgh has won five of its last six, is 30-20 in its last 50 games and stands just a half game out of the second wild-card spot.
