After snapping long skid, Pirates to face Indians again

If there is such thing as momentum, it's difficult to know which team might have it in their pocket Saturday as the Pittsburgh Pirates and visiting Cleveland Indians head into the second game of their weekend series.

Aptly, it was a fireworks night at PNC Park when Pittsburgh ended a 10-game losing streak Friday. The Indians, whose four-game winning streak came to an end, also have reason to feel they gained an edge going into the rest of the series after what they did in an 11-10 loss.

The Pirates built an 11-1 lead through six innings, then nearly blew it as Cleveland kept the pressure on and had the potential tying and go-ahead runs in scoring position in the ninth.
