The Pirates have entered a nose-dive in September, and encountering the Reds — who have owned Pittsburgh in 2017 — won’t help. Cincinnati supported pitcher Homer Bailey with four home runs en route to a 4-2 victory on Friday at Great American Ball Park.
The Pirates often preach that prospect development is not a linear process. For proof, look at the growth of right-hander Chad Kuhl heading into Friday’s series opener against the Reds at Great American Ball Park.
