In this article, we will formulate a Pittsburgh Pirates vs LA Dodgers prediction for this MLB game on Thursday, June 6th at PNC Park. 

How Do The Dodgers Bounce Back?

The Dodgers scored six runs on Wednesday, but the pitching was awful giving up ten runs and that led to the defeat. Shohei Ohtani hit a home run and drove in two RBIs. The Dodgers are averaging 4.79 runs while their pitching is giving up 3.42 runs per game. The offense is ranked 7th in the league while the pitching is ranked 2nd. They haave a run differential of 1.37 which is 4th in the league. Shohei Ohtani has hit 14 home runs and driven in 38 RBIs so far this season. Getting the start for the Dodgers will be Walker Buehler who sits with a 1-3 record and an ERA of 4.32. In his last start against the Colorado Rockies, he went six innings, giving up six hits and four runs. 

Pirates Offense Looked Good

The Pirates offense scored ten runs on Wednesday and that was enough for the victory. Nick Gonzales had a strong game, finishing with two hits and four RBIs. The Pirates are averaging 4.0 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.4 runs per game. The offense is ranked 22nd in the league while the pitching is ranked 17th. They have a run differential of -0.4 which is 20th in the league. They are averaging 7.78 hits per game which is 22nd in the league. Bryan Reynolds has hit eight home runs and driven in 32 RBIs so far this season. Getting the start for the Pirates will be Bailey Falter who sits with a 3-2 record and an ERA of 3.22. In his last start against the Toronto Blue Jays, he went six innings giving up two hits and zero runs. 

Pittsburgh Pirates vs LA Dodgers Prediction

Runs are going to be hard to come by in this game. Falter has been really good in this game and in his last start he gave up two hits and zero runs. I also expect Buehler is going to get back to his old form, and the Pirates offense is going to really struggle to get the offense going here. Both of the pitchers are going to step up and that is going to be the difference here. Back the under to cash here.
