Pirates Finishing Season Strong?

Coming into this game the Pirates have won four of their last five games and even in the loss the offense only gave up four runs. On Saturday against the Cincinnati Reds, the Pirates gave up 12 runs, but the offense scored 13 runs. The Pirates are averaging 4.31 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.92 runs per game. The offense is ranked 21st while the pitching is ranked 22nd. 

Aaron Nola Needs to be Lights Out

On the mound for the Phillies will be Aaron Nola who sits with a 12-9 record and an ERA of 4.57. In his last start against the Phillies he went six innings giving up six hits and two runs. Coming into this game the Phillies have won five games in a row. The Phillies are averaging 4.92 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.41 runs per game. The offense is ranked 8th while the pitching is ranked 13th. 

Shane’s Free Pick

Aaron Nola in his last start was good and he’s going to lockdown again in this game. The Pirates bats have been inconsistent all season and they are going to really struggle again in this game to get anything going. The Pirates are going to score only a run or two total and that is going to be the difference here. This is going to be another blowout victory for the Phillies. Back the Phillies -1.5. 

Shane’s Pick Phillies -1.5
