The Cincinnati Reds face the Pittsburgh Pirates on Sunday, September 6th at PNC Park for game four of a four-game series. 

The Cincinnati Reds defeated the Pittsburgh Pirates by the final score of 6-2 on Saturday night in game three of this series. Eugenio Suarez had himself a night on Saturday, as he hit three home runs for the Reds in their 18th victory of the season. The Reds have now taken two of the first three games of this series against Pittsburgh, as they are now 18-22 on the year. The Pirates have the worst record in the MLB currently, as they are 12-26. The 2020 season has not been a waste for Pittsburgh however, as the Pirates have been able to use this season to give some of their more promising young players meaningful playing time. The Reds are currently in fourth place in the NL Central, while the Pirates sit in last place.

The Cincinnati Reds are set to bring right-hander Sonny Gray to the mound to face the Pirates. Gray is 5-2 with a 3.19 ERA through his first 42.1 innings of the season with the Reds. Gray is coming off his worst start as a Red, as on September 1st he allowed six earned runs inside the first innings against the Cardinals. Gray was pulled after 0.2 innings of work, and he will look to bounce back on Sunday. 

The Pittsburgh Pirates will send right-hander Chad Kuhl to the bump for Sunday's contest. Kuhl is 1-1 with a 3.10 ERA through his first 29.0 innings of the season with the Pirates. Kuhl allowed three earned runs through 4.0 innings to the Chicago Cubs in his most recent outing on September 1st.

Kuhl has done well for the Pirates this season, but he will have to go toe-to-toe with a determined Sonny Gray. I do not think Gray is going to let another start slide by, and I expect a very strong comeback performance from him on Sunday. I will take the Reds to win this game, and will take them on the money line if the price is not too expensive. Check back soon for the odds in this one.
