The Atlanta Braves and Pittsburgh Pirates face off on Tuesday in an MLB showdown at PNC Park. On Monday it was the Braves that were able to secure the 2-1 victory. 

The Braves come into this game with a 76-48 record overall and they have won four of the last five games. On Monday the offense wasn’t great, but the pitching was elite, and that led to the one-run victory. The Braves pitching has been good, but even more impressive has been the offense. The Braves are averaging 4.86 runs per game which is 3rd best in the league. Austin Riley has hit 31 home runs and driven in 78 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Pirates who sit with a 47-75 record overall and have lost three games in a row. In two of the last three games, the Pirates have scored only a run, and the offense has been a big issue all season. The Pirates are averaging 3.61 runs per game which is 28th in the league. If the Pirates want any chance in this game, the offense needs to get going.
