The Pirates are holding Zombie Night at PNC Park next Tuesday, September 26, presumably in a celebration of their performance this month.

The Bucs (68-82) have won just one of their last 11 (a 7-0 victory in Milwaukee last Monday) and have a 5-11 mark in September after being swept in three games in Cincinnati over the weekend.

The Brewers, who took two of three from the Pirates last week at Miller Park, won two of three against the Marlins over the weekend and sit four games behind the first-place Cubs in the National League Central. The Cubs’ sweep of the Cardinals didn’t help Milwaukee at the top of the division, but it did leave the Brewers with a two-game cushion over St. Louis.
