Pittsburgh is 21-54 in their last 75 road games and 1-4 in their last 5 Friday games. The under is 7-2-2 in Pittsburgh’s last 11 games. San Diego is 4-0 in their last 4 Friday games and 5-2 in their last 7 games. The under is 4-1 in San Diego’s last 5 games. Pittsburgh is 2-5 in these two teams last 7 head to head meetings.

The Padres were on an absolute roll before their series against the Brewers and will look to get back on track against a Pirates team that is not very good. Both of these pitchers have been good this season, but Quintana has allowed 0 runs in three out of this last five starts. Quintana has been able to keep the Pirates in games, even though he hasn’t always received very good run support. I like the Pirates to keep this game close.
