Who will win the first game of this series? Difficult choice. My pick today: Pittsburgh.
Liriano has had a week hard, but their best starts have been at home.
Liriano home ERA (1.37) WHIP (0.990) W / L (8-1) IP / S (6.8), good numbers at home.
Latos, last two starts: ERA (5.25) WHIP (1.459) W / L (0-1-1) IP / S (6.6).
Pittsburgh has to take advantage of playing at home after this series after traveling to Chicago to visit Cincinnati. They still remain even game lead over Cincinnati.
The over is a hard choice but I think I can add more than seven runs.
CINCINNATI 3 - 5 PITTSBURGH
fooling with the Total, but I completely agree with your analysis… In my opinion, both teams are in the playoffs
but with Saint Louis
dropping the ball lost night, puts the division title squarely on the table. I think Pittsburgh
takes two out of three in this series and the get the first one in the
comfortable surroundings of PNC
that said, put me down for Pittsburgh ML (-108) for a Nickel please. Thanks!
NOTE: If I had to call the Total, I would say this will be a pitching duel and Under would be the play.
