AFC North Preview

AFC North Preview

The Steelers opened the preseason as the odd-on favorite in the AFC North, but injuries and suspensions could open the door for a still-talented Bengals team and Ravens squad looking to rebound from a disappointing 2015.

The win completes the Pirates (67-61) first-ever four-game sweep in Milwaukee.

Josh Harrison and the Pittsburgh batters were dialed in offensively with 12 hits, four walks and nine runs.

Shortstop Jordy Mercer hit a grand slam     to help the Pittsburgh Pirates (65-61) win 5-3 over the Milwaukee Brewers (56-72) Friday.

Cole (7-9) started strong, recording a 1-2-3 inning in the first for the first time since April 21. From there he struggled, starting with a second inning two run homer by Evan Gattis.

Nova (3-0) has become a reliable starter for the Pirates since being picked up at the trade deadline.

Freese has been one of the best position player free agent signings in the Neal Huntington era. It’s hard to imagine where this team would be without him.
