Pirates look to continue success vs. Brewers

It's doubtful anyone is bringing back the old-time refrain of "Break up the Bucs" -- besides, Pittsburgh Pirates management pretty much did that in the offseason with an overhaul of the rotation and some of the top offensive talent -- but the team certainly has turned things around.

Entering Saturday's game against the host Milwaukee Brewers, the Pirates have won five of their past seven games, including Friday's series-opening 6-1 victory over the Brewers. Pittsburgh's success came on the heels of a six-game losing streak that seemed to foretell an utterly dismal season.

"Come out and play max effort and play the game hard, and good things will happen," Pirates second baseman Kevin Newman, who had a two-run triple Friday, told AT&T Sportsnet.
