The Arizona Diamondbacks and Pittsburgh Pirates face off on Friday in an MLB showdown at PNC Park.

The Pirates come into this game with a 22-27 record overall but they have a ton of confidence heading into this game. The Pirates have won three games in a row over the Los Angeles Dodgers, and in each of those games, they scored at least five runs. The Pirates overall are averaging 3.55  runs per game and they are going to need to continue to have a strong offense in this game. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Arizona Diamondbacks who sit with a 25-27 record overall, and they had won two games in a row before losing the last game against the Atlanta Braves. The Diamondbacks are averaging 3.90 runs per game which haven’t been good enough, and it’s a bit surprising they are only two games under .500. Christian Walker is having a big season hitting 13 home runs and driving in 25 RBIs.

On the mound for the Diamondbacks is Merrill Kelly who sits a 3-3 record and an ERA of 3.67. In his last start against the Dodgers, he went five innings, giving up seven hits and three earned runs. The Diamondbacks are going to need Kelly to only give up a couple of runs. 

On the mound for the Pirates is JT Brubaker who sits with an 0-4 record and an ERA of 4.15. In his last start against the Padres, he went five innings giving up six hits and one run. 

The Pirates are 0-5 in Brubaker’s last five games played on Friday. The under is 4-0 in Brubaker’s last four starts overall. The over is 4-0 in Brubaker’s last four games played on Friday. 

The Pirates have struggled in Brubaker’s last five starts on Friday but that is going to change here.

Look for the Diamondbacks bats to be quiet here, and the Pirates will secure the victory.
