The San Diego Padres and Pittsburgh Pirates face off on Sunday in an MLB showdown at PNC Park. In the first game of the series, it was the Padres that won 7-3. On Saturday, the Pirates got some revenge winning 7-6.
The Padres have gotten out to a fast start to the season sitting with a 14-8 record overall and they had won four games in a row before losing to the Pirates on Saturday. In each of the last five games the Paidres have scored at least six runs, and they need the strong offense to continue here. Manny Machado is having a big season hitting four home runs and driving in 14 RBIs. There are five different players who have driven in at least 10 runs.
On the other side of this matchup is the Pirates who sit with a 9-12 record overall and they had lost four games in a row before winning the last game. During the last three losses the Pirates scored only six runs total, and in this game, they need the offense to continue what they started on Saturday. Michael Chavis has been the top player for the Pirates hitting three home runs and driving in 11 RBIs.
Getting the start for the Padres is Joe Musgrove who sits with a 3-0 record and an ERA of 2.16. In his last start though he struggled giving up seven hits and five runs in six innings.
On the mound for the Pirates is Mitch Keller who sits with an 0-3 record and an ERA of 6.62. In his last start against the Brewers he went 4.2 innings giving up five hits and four runs.
The Pirates are 0-5 in Keller’s last five starts. The over is 6-0 in Musgroves' last six starts against the National League Central. The over is 3-0-3 in the Pirates' last six starters with a WHIP less than 1.15.
The Pirates have lost each of Keller’s last five starts, and that streak will continue here. The Padres have scored at least six runs in their last five games and they will continue the offensive success against Keller who has been awful this year. Look for the Padres to reach at least six runs again, and they will win this game on the run line.
