Pirates sweep 4 from Brewers, now 3 back

PITTSBURGH (AP) The Pittsburgh Pirates spent a good portion of the first half of the season trying - and failing - to find any sort of traction.

Once they'd figure out one problem, another would pop up. If it wasn't the bullpen, it was the mess left by outfielder Starling Marte's 80-game steroid suspension. Or the back end of the starting rotation. Or the massive funk that baffled star center fielder Andrew McCutchen.

Two hot weeks have changed the discussion dramatically.
