Pirates look to bust out of slump against Phillies

The Philadelphia Phillies and Pittsburgh Pirates, who open a weekend series Friday at PNC Park, did not get off to great starts coming out of the All-Star break.

Philadelphia might be breaking out of it. With a 7-6 comeback win Thursday against the Los Angeles, the Phillies picked up their 50th win and have won two of their past three games after going 1-3 to open a post-break, seven-game homestand against the Dodgers and Washington Nationals.

"It's big for the confidence of the guys in (the locker) room," Phillies first baseman Rhys Hoskins told MLB Network. "We knew this was going to be a big week for us. ... Confidence is still sky-high here. We're not panicking. But it feels good to get a win going on the road."
