The Pittsburgh Pirates and Tampa Bay Rays face off on Friday in an MLB showdown at Tropicana Field. 

The Pirates come into this game with a 29-40 record overall and they are coming off a series where they took three of four games against the Chicago Cubs. On Thursday, the Pirates scored eight runs and secured the victory. Overall the Pirates are averaging 3.68 runs per game which is 28th in the league. Byran Reynolds has been the top player for the Pirates hitting 12 home runs and driving in 23 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Rays who sit with a 37-32 record and they lost two of their last three against the New York Yankees. The offense for the Rays hasn’t been great, but their pitching has been good. The Rays are giving up 3.81 runs per game which is 5th best in the league. Randy Arozarena is having a big season hitting seven home runs and driving in 31 RBIs.

On the mound for the Pirates will be Mitch Keller who sits with a 2-5 record and an ERA of 4.72. In his last start against the San Francisco Giants, he went six innings giving up three hits and two runs. 

On the mound for the Rays is Jeffrey Springs who sits with a 3-2 record and an ERA of 2.00. In his last start against the Baltimore Orioles, he went 4.1 innings giving up seven hits and four runs. 

The Rays are 0-4 in Springs last four starts. The under is 4-0 in Springs last four starts on astroturf. The over is 5-0 in Keller’s last five starts during Game 1 of a series. The under is 5-0 in Springs' last 5 starts when their opponent scores 5 runs or more in their previous game.

Mitch Keller has had some major issues this season, and I expect the Rays bats are going to finally break out here. The Pirates bats have struggled all season and they are going to have issues against Springs. Look for the Rays to score five or six runs off of Keller and the bullpen and Rays will win this game on the run line.
