The Pirates didn’t cash in on Friday, but they sure did battle and now get to try to finish on a high note against Aaron Civale, who in my opinion is the weakest starter in the Indians’ rotation. Civale’s posted a 5.10 ERA in his last five starts spanning 30 innings, but Musgrove’s coming off of a career start where he struck out 11 over six scoreless innings, but the bullpen couldn’t hold on to get him a win. I think we could see Musgrove end the year with a bang and go out on arguably his finest start of the year, so I’ll take a shot with the Pirates and the value as my premium pick for this game.
