Red Sox-Pirates Preview

(AP) -- Thanks in part to his outstanding work last September, Gerrit Cole became one of the big reasons the Pittsburgh Pirates ended their lengthy playoff drought.

Now the young right-hander is looking to contribute to another playoff march in the final month of this season.

As Cole looks to win a season-best third consecutive start, the Pirates will try to move closer to back-to-back playoff berths with a fourth straight victory Thursday night against the visiting Boston Red Sox.
