Reds-Pirates Preview

(AP) -- Clint Hurdle got the Pittsburgh Pirates to believe in his new approach for the offense, and it's paying off with the franchise's best April at the plate in 86 years.

That offensive surge is likely to continue as the Pirates open a three-game series with the visiting Cincinnati Reds, who have one of the worst staffs in baseball.

Hurdle is using a combination of rest and strategy to spur Pittsburgh (13-9) offensively. The moves have produced 119 runs and a .294 average, the Pirates' highest in April since hitting .331 in 1930.
