I’m not running to the window to back the Pirates given their issues this season, but it beats backing the Diamondbacks. And while the Diamondbacks have looked decent their last two times out, they haven’t won three straight games since April 25-27. There’s much better betting options on Tuesday’s card, but if forced to pick, I’m going with the Pirates.
