Pirates to oppose familiar face as they open series vs. Josh Bell, Nationals

When the Pittsburgh Pirates visit the Washington Nationals for a three-game series starting Monday, they will confront an old friend on a hot streak.

Former Pirate Josh Bell went 3-for-5 with an RBI and two runs scored in the Nationals' 6-4 win over the Texas Rangers on Sunday. Over his past 10 games, Bell is hitting .429 (15-for-35) with four home runs, eight RBIs and eight runs scored.

Bell, a free agent at the end of the season, will likely be sent to a contender at the trade deadline. But for now, he'll continue to rake for Washington.
