Braves look to complete sweep of Pirates

Perhaps the run-starved Pittsburgh Pirates were just what the Atlanta Braves needed to get revved up again.

The Braves (70-55), first in the National League East, arrived at PNC Park seeming a bit vulnerable after being swept in four games by Colorado. But Wednesday they will go for a sweep of the three-game series in Pittsburgh.

Atlanta slipped past the Pirates 1-0 Monday, then blew past them 6-1 Tuesday behind eight scoreless, four-hit innings from Kevin Gausman and two two-run homers from shortstop Dansby Swanson.
