Back-to-basics Pirates seek another win over Nats

Perhaps the Pittsburgh Pirates should make it a regular practice to use their pregame time on the field to revisit spring training.

After all, it seemed to work Tuesday before their 4-1 win over the visiting Washington Nationals.

The Pirates had been struggling mightily -- scoring one run during a three-game losing streak, winning just seven times in their first 35 games after the All-Star break -- before they changed things up Tuesday, resorting to going back to basics.
