Pirates Looking to Close Season Strong
It’s been a disappointing season for the Pirates and heading into Thursday’s game they had lost three in a row. After such a strong start to the season the Pirates couldn’t keep it going. The Pirates are averaging 4.3 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.92 runs per game. The offense is ranked 21st in the league while the pitching is ranked 22nd.
Shane’s Free Pick
The Marlins are the better team and they have so much more to play for right now. The Pirates offense has been an issue heading into this game and they are going to really struggle to get the offense going here. Look for the Pirates to score only two or three runs and that will be enough or the Marlins to get the job done here. Back the Marlins on the money line to cash here.
