Pirates clinch playoff spot, beat Braves 3-2

ATLANTA (AP) Gerrit Cole was so focused on recording 17 consecutive outs, he didn't glance at the out-of-town scoreboard.

Cole insisted he didn't know his win over Atlanta had clinched a playoff spot for Pittsburgh until he walked into the clubhouse and saw the lockers covered in plastic.

The surging Pirates earned their second straight trip to the postseason with a 3-2 victory over the free-falling Braves on Tuesday night.
