Pirates Vs. Reds: Bucs, Reds Finish Four-Game Series

Kevin Correia takes on Travis Wood Monday night at 7:10 PM in the finale of the Pirates' four-game series against the Cincinnati Reds.

Correia kicked off his season with solid starts against the Cubs and Cardinals, but he fell apart in the sixth inning of his last start against the Brewers, giving up a three-run bomb to Prince Fielder and allowing six runs total, four earned.

Wood, meanwhile, was brilliant in his season-opening start against the Brewers and reasonably strong in his last start in San Diego, but he allowed six runs in an April 8 start against the Diamondbacks. He doesn't have overpowering stuff and relies primarily on a fastball, cutter and change.

The Pirates lead the series 3-1 after breaking through for a bizarre win on Sunday. The Reds won in a blowout on Saturday, but Charlie Morton pitched a complete game on Friday to lead the Pirates to victory.
