For Reds and Pirates, last-place finish at stake

The Pittsburgh Pirates and visiting Cincinnati Reds will be in contention for something in a series that opens Monday evening -- but it is far from a playoff spot.

The three games between the teams will help determine whether the Reds (60-93) or Pirates (56-97) finish last in the National League Central.

Those two teams also are in contention for last place in the league. Their competition there is Washington (53-99).
