Lets take a quick look at the Pittsburgh Pirates game vs. Cincinatti Reds scheduled for 4:10pm EST. I don’t even know who is going to be the starter for Pittsburgh at this point of the night, but does it matter? the Pirates are so bad and facing one of the hottest pitchers this far into the season. Trevor Bauer sporting a 1.74 ERA with 71 strikeouts. His first time through the lineups he has been lights out with a .92 ERA. His third time… he has a 1.32 ERA. He has a total of 4 runs in those two stretches (32 inning sample size.) I’m looking for the Reds to take control of this game and Bauer to throw another chip in play for his Cy Young bid.
Prediction: Cincinnati Reds -1.5
