The Pittsburgh Pirates enter the final weeks of the regular season, and have made it through five and a half months without a collapse. If anything, the month of August has proved these 2013 Pirates as ones that are not going to collapse.

Despite posting their lowest total of wins of any month, the Pirates still managed to go into the second week of September near the top of the National League Central and 21 games over .500.

The Pirates (82-61) clinched a winning record, their first since 1992, with the victory. Pittsburgh had dropped four straight on the road, including a three-game sweep at the hands of the St.

The Brewers pounded Francisco Liriano for seven runs in three innings and the Pirates were unable to pull off the sweep in Miller Park, falling to Milwaukee 9-3 Wednesday evening.

After clinching their first .500 record since 1993, the Pirates were looking to extend their division lead on the St. Louis Cardinals.

It was a really eerie walk to Heinz Field on Monday evening. Following the social norm that every Pittsburgher goes about in ritual at the tail end of August, I made my way to prepare for another football season, through the eyes of Pitt’s season opener.

That’s nothing new for me. I’d covered the season opener for five straight years going into this holiday weekend.

Marlon Byrd drove in two runs, Andrew McCutchen scored three times and Justin Morneau had three hits, but it was Travis Snider's ninth inning pinch-hit homer that proved to be the game-winner as the Pirates' two decades of losing finally came to an end with a 4-3 win in Milwaukee, the Bucs' 81st victory of the season.

The Pirates received an early boost from McCutchen, who hit his 18th homer of the year in the first inning.

The St. Louis Cardinals avoided a series sweep against the Pirates on Sunday afternoon with a 7-1 blow out victory.

The Pittsburgh Pirates did a lot Saturday night at PNC Park. Most importantly, though, the Bucs (79-56) beat the St. Louis Cardinals (78-57) 7-1 to break a tie atop the NL Central and pull out to a one game lead as the calendar flips to September.

Among other things, though, the Pirates clinched a winning record in the season-series with St.

The Pittsburgh Pirates (78-56) look to take sole control of first place in the NL Central in tonight's match-up with the St. Louis Cardinals (78-56). A.J. Burnett (6-9. 3.18 ERA) throws for the Pirates, will Lance Lynn (13-8, 4.02) toes the rubber on St. Louis' behalf.

--The big news of the day comes on the roster front, as the Pirates swung a deal with the Minnesota Twins for first baseman Justin Morneau in exchange for Alex Presley and a player to be named.

The Pittsburgh Pirates today announced that they have acquired first baseman Justin Morneau from the Minnesota Twins in exchange for outfielder Alex Presley and a player to be named or cash considerations.

Whenever a hockey team changes coaches mid-season, it’s fair to look at the season in two parts. The beginning of the 2015-16 Pittsburgh Penguins campaign was the end of the Mike Johnston era and the remainder marked the beginning of Mike Sullivan’s tenure as head coach.
