Pirates brace for deGrom, Mets

PITTSBURGH -- The Pirates' offense looks to keep improving, but Pittsburgh has a tough draw in New York Mets right-hander Jacob deGrom for the opener of a three-game series on Friday at PNC Park.

The Pirates, who are 13th in the National League with a .233 batting average, have been held back by below-average offensive production all season, but that trend might be reversing.

Pittsburgh, averaging 4.23 runs, broke out with 12-5 and 9-4 wins over the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday and Thursday, respectively.
