Hill stifles Cards as Pirates cap sweep

PITTSBURGH (AP) When he's on, Rich Hill's pitches still dance. They still dart. They go this way. Then that way. They can baffle hitters with their movement, particularly the ones that don't come close to breaking the speed limit on most interstates.

In a game that seems to get faster each year, Hill is a throwback. A survivor. At 43 and 19 years into a career he figured would have been over long ago, the well-traveled left-hander knows he's essentially playing on borrowed time.
