The Cleveland Indians and Pittsburgh Pirates come into their interleague series licking their wounds this weekend.
The three-game series, which starts Friday at Progressive Field, features a pair of second-place teams — in their respective divisions — that were just swept in separate interleague matchups. Both pitching staffs were worked over as the Tribe lost three straight to the host Reds and the Pirates were swept by the Orioles.
Facing off with identical 32-30 records to start, the Indians and Pirates come into the three-game set with a .500 (15-15) all-time series mark.
