The San Diego Padres and the Pittsburgh Pirates face off on Friday at PETCO Park in San Diego for game two of their MLB series.

The San Diego Padres fell behind early on Thursday as they ended up getting pummeled by the Pirates. Justin Upton had two hits and Will Venable and Yangervis Solarte each had hits as the Padres scored five runs on nine hits. Starting pitcher Ian Kennedy allowed seven hits and seven runs while striking out five and lasting just 3.2 innings to take the loss and fall to 2-5 for the season. For Friday’s game the Padres start James Shields who has allowed 58 hits and 26 earned runs while striking out 82 over 62.1 innings for a 6-0 record and a3.75 ERA.

The Pittsburgh Pirates scored early and often pounding Padres pitching en route to an easy win on Thursday. Starling Marte, Jung-ho Kang, and Gregory Polanco each hit home runs and Andrew McCutchen and Neil Walker each had three hits as the Pirates scored 11 runs on 15 hits. Starting pitcher A.J. Burnett allowed eight hits and four runs while striking out six over 5.2 innings to get the win and go to 5-2 for the season. For Friday’s game the Padres start Francisco Liriano who has allowed 38 hits and 23 earned runs while striking out 64 over 53.2 innings for a 2-4 record and a 3.86 ERA.

San Diego is 4-10 in their last 14 games, 27-9 as a home favorite, and 5-0 in Shields’ last five starts. Pittsburgh is 5-0 against the NL West, 21-7 in Friday games, and 2-8 in Liriano’s last 10 starts. Pittsburgh is 6-2 in their last eight games in San Diego.

The total is set at 6.0 and even with these two on the mound my free pick is the over. My stronger play is on the winning side and I will post that in the Premium Area and on the App.

On July 1, 2008 I typed into Google "How Do I start A Blog" and I started my first website called "Miami Mitch's Place" where i shared my college football Picks and predictions as well as opinion. By the Fall I had heard from many that the title made it sound like the site was about Miami so I changed it to "College Football Place" (, After the 2008 college football season I change focus and launched, it wasn't long after that when I realized I just wanted one place to add all sports, and that's when Sports Chat Place was born.
