The Pittsburgh Pirates will head to the Pacific Northwest to face the Seattle Mariners for game one of their interleague series this Friday from T-Mobile Park.

Pirates Betting Preview

Pittsburgh comes in at 25-24 after dropping two of three to Texas. The Pirates lost their sixth straight series this month, and they’ll look to change their fortunes during this road trip. The Pittsburgh offense is scoring 3.95 runs per game, while batting .258, with a .334 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 3.56 ERA, with a 1.29 WHIP. Bryan Reynolds has a hit in six of his last ten games, and he leads the Pirates in BA (.282) and RBI (28). Andrew McCutchen recorded multiple hits in two of three games against Texas, and he leads the Bucs in home runs (7), with 19 RBI. Carlos Santana produced a run in the game one victory, and he’s second on the team with 23 RBI.

Mitch Keller (5-1, 2.44 ERA, 77 Ks) will pitch for Pittsburgh. The fifth-year righty continues to be one of the best pitchers in baseball this year. After tossing a complete game shutout versus Colorado, he followed it up by delivering a 13-K gem in Baltimore, before striking out eight in six innings of work against Arizona in his last outing. Eight of Keller’s last nine appearances have resulted in quality starts, and there’s a very good chance he makes his first All-Star game this season. Keller has cleared eight strikeouts in five straight starts..

Mariners Betting Preview 

Seattle enters at 25-24 after sweeping Oakland. The Mariners jumped back above .500 by dispatching the A’s four times, but they’ll face more of a challenge here with the upset-happy Pirates this weekend. The Seattle offense is scoring 3.67 runs per game, while batting .227, with a .308 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 3.55 ERA, with a 1.19 WHIP. Jarred Kelenic has a hit in six of the last eight games, and he leads the team in batting (.289) and home runs (10). Ty France homered twice in the season finale versus Oakland to bring his splits to .266/5/23. Eugenio Suarez produced a run in the win over the A’s, and he leads Seattle in RBI (28).

George Kirby (5-3, 2.62 ERA, 17 Ks) will start for Seattle. The second-year pitcher put together another good outing in Atlanta on Sunday, striking out six in seven full innings, but he earned the losing decision. Kirby has been very reliable since a tough season debut, delivering eight straight quality starts, and clearing six strikeouts in four of his last five appearances. 

Pittsburgh vs Seattle Trends

Pittsburgh is 26-23 against the spread this season, with a 22-25-2 O/U record. Seattle is 26-23 ATS this year, with a 23-25-1 over/under record.

Corey’s Free Pick

Two strong arms collide in Seattle Friday night in what could end up being a sneaky pitcher’s duel. Mitch Keller and George Kirby are both enjoying strong starts to the 2023 season, and I think they both come out and deal here. Keller has been the more effective pitcher early on, and I like giving Pittsburgh a shot to win their third game one in a row. Spot them the runs for safety.
