Pittsburgh is 17-43 in their last 60 games and 1-6 in their last 7 games against the AL East. The over is 13-3 in Pittsburgh’s last 16 Wednesday games. New York is 10-2 in their last 12 interleague home games and 6-2 in their last 8 games. The over is 6-1 in New York’s last 7 home games. Pittsburgh is 1-9 in these two teams last 10 head to head meetings in New York.

New York was able to win in dramatic fashion on Tuesday night with a walk off grand slam by Giancarlo Stanton. New York will start Luis Severino in this game, who is returning from the IL and hasn’t pitched since mid-July. For the Pirates, Roansy Contreras has allowed two runs or fewer in five straight starts. I have been very impressed with Contreras over his last few starts, but how will he hold up against the Yankees lineup? I am taking the under in this game.
