On the negative side, however, the Pirates are well out of postseason contention, meaning the team must regroup and give it a shot next season.
September didn’t start off on a good note for the Pirates. Pittsburgh dropped its first five games of the month to extend a losing streak to eight games dating back to the last week of August.
