Pirates, Cardinals still in hunt in weak Central

If the Pittsburgh Pirates or St. Louis Cardinals were in any other division but the National League Central, they might already be cast in the role of seller at next month's trading deadline.

But at least this year, location is everything. The Pirates (33-40) and Cardinals (33-38) start a weekend series Friday night at Busch Stadium still in contention instead of staring at an insurmountable deficit.

St. Louis is only five games behind first place Milwaukee, while Pittsburgh is six games in arrears of the Brewers. It arrives in town fresh off a four-game split at Milwaukee that the Pirates could have turned into a series victory.
