Brewers-Pirates Preview

(AP) -- Russell Martin's bat is moving the Pittsburgh Pirates closer to a return to the postseason while also dropping the Milwaukee Brewers further back in the wild-card race.

Giving the ball to Edinson Volquez may put the Brewers even closer to the brink of elimination.

While Martin tries to remain hot, Volquez attempts to keep himself unbeaten for an 11th straight game Saturday night against the fading Brewers.
