Pittsburgh comes into this game with one of the best records in all of baseball and they are on a seven game winning streak. Los Angeles just took three out of four games against the Cubs, but they have had some issues with their pitching. The Dodgers will start Noah Syndergaard, who has allowed five earned runs over his last 12.0 innings pitched. The Pirates will turn to Johan Oviedo, who has allowed two earned runs in his last 19.2 innings pitched. I am going to ride the hot hand with the Pirates here.
