The Pittsburgh Pirates look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Pirates have scored 13 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last nine games. The Pirates have won four straight when scoring more than three runs. Andrew McCutchen leads Pittsburgh with 145 hits and 89 RBI while Starling Marte and Gregory Polanco have combined for 110 RBI. The Pittsburgh Pirates have won six of their last eight home games. A.J. Burnett takes the hill, and he’s 8-5 with a 3.06 ERA and 114 strikeouts this season. Burnett is 2-7 with a 4.35 ERA and 80 strikeouts in his career against the Brewers.
The Brewers are 4-0 in their last 4 during game 1 of a series and 4-1 in Peraltas last 5 starts. The Pirates are 39-14 in their last 53 home games and 11-5 in Burnetts last 16 starts. The Brewers are 2-5 in the last 7 meetings in Pittsburgh and the Pirates are 0-6 in Burnetts last 6 starts vs. Brewers.
Things should get back to normal now that the Pirates are back at home, a place where they usually win and win big. Burnett is also back on the hill, which should give Pitt an extra boost. I like the Pirates here.
