The Pittsburgh Pirates and the Arizona Diamondbacks will play the 3rd game of the series at the Chase Field on Wednesday night. The Diamondbacks took the win again 6-4 in the second game of the series and are 3-2 against the Pirates so far this season.
The Pirates get to this game with a 44-66 record and have lost 4 of their last 5 games. The team is averaging 3.63 runs per game. They're batting for .221 AVG, 392 runs scored in 783 hits and 108 home runs, ranking #28 in offense in the league behind the Washington Nationals. Bryan Reynolds leads the team in home runs with 16, 35 RBI and batting for an average of .258.
Defensively they are allowing 4.99 runs per game and ranking #26 in the league. JT Brubaker leads the pitching staff with a 4.49 ERA, 111 strikeouts and 2 win with the Pirates.
Probable Pitcher: Mitch Keller (3-8, 4.21 ERA)
Keller will be on the mound in the 3rd game of the series for the Pirates. Keller took the loss Friday, allowing one run on eight hits and a walk over six innings in a 1-0 loss to the Orioles. He struck out one. He hasn't pitched against the Dbacks in his career.
The Diamondbacks get here with a 50-59 record and have won 5 of their last 7 games. The team is averaging 4.25 runs per game and they're batting for .227 AVG, 455 runs scored in 800 hits and 123 home runs, ranking #19 in offense in the league behind the Cincinnati Reds. Christian Walker leads with 26 home runs and 61 RBI and Ketel Marte is batting for .261 AVG.
Defensively they are allowing 4.57 runs per game and rank #23 in the league. Merrill Kelly leads the team with a 2.86 ERA and 109 strikeouts and 10 wins recorded.
Probable Pitcher: Madison Bumgarner (6-10 3.96 ERA)
Bumgarner will be on the mound in the 3rd game of the series for the Diamondbacks. Bumgarner didn't factor into the decision during Friday's 6-5 win against Colorado, allowing five runs (four earned) on 10 hits and one walk with two strikeouts in 5.2 innings. He has a record of 3-6 with an ERA of 3.29 and 60 strikeouts in 11 appearances against the Pirates in his career.
Pittsburgh Pirates are 0-6 SU in their last 6 games when playing on the road against Arizona.
The total has gone OVER in 5 of Pittsburgh's last 6 games against an opponent in the National League.
The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Arizona's last 7 games against Pittsburgh.
Arizona Dbacks are 7-1 SU in their last 8 games at home.
The Pirates continue to lose games and struggle on the road where they have a 20-37 record so far. For this game they'll send Mitch Keller to start the game who has been solid lately allowing 1 run in each of his last 2 starts but the Pirates have lost in 14 of his 17 starts this season. Bumgarner will take the mound for the Dbacks and he has struggled lately allowing 4 runs in each of his last 2 starts. Even with Keller on the mound the Pirates offense is one of the worst in the league and I expect Bumgarner to have a good start at home. Give me the Diamondbacks again.
