The Toronto Blue Jays and Pittsburgh Pirates face off on Saturday in an MLB showdown at PNC Park. On Friday it was the Toronto Blue Jays that were able to secure the 4-0 victory.
The Blue Jays come into this game with a 71-59 record overall and they have won three of their last four games. In the three wins the pitching has been good, and it’s going to be important in this game that the pitching is strong again. The Blue Jays offense has been the strength this season averaging 4.65 runs per game which is 7th best in the league. Lourdes Gurriel Jr is dealing with a wrist injury and is questionable for this game.
On the other side of this matchup is the Pirates who sit with a 49-82 record overall and they have lost two games in a row. Over the last two games, the offense has only managed one run and they need to get the offense going here. The Pirates offense is averaging 3.53 runs per game which is 28th in the league.
On the mound for the Pirates will be Roansy Contreras and he sits with a 4-4 record and an ERA of 3.57. In his last start against the Philadelphia Phillies, he went five innings giving up three hits and zero runs.
On the mound for the Blue Jays will be Trevor Richards and he sits with a 3-1 record and an ERA of 4.53. In his last appearance, he went 1.1 innings giving up zero hits and zero runs.
The Blue Jays are 6-1 in their last seven road games. The Pirates are 0-6 in their last six home games. The over is 7-1 in the Blue Jays last eight interleague games. The over is 3-1-1 in the Pirates last five interleague games.
Contreras was strong in his last start giving up zero runs, and runs are going to be hard to come by again in this game. There were only four runs scored on Friday and I think there might be even fewer runs in this game. This game is going to be low scoring and the under is going to cash.
