Shane’s Free Pick

The Pirates offense can’t be discounted and they are going to find success again scoring here. The Nationals' offense is going to really struggle again here, and their lack of scoring isn’t going to allow them to stay close. The Nationals will score only two or three runs. Back the Pirates on the money line.
