Pittsburgh Pirates vs Cincinnati Reds Predictions 8/14/2020

The Pirates came in strong in game with a 9-6 victory, but still does not change the fact that they are dead last in the National League. The team’s luck this season is getting worse with injuries plaguing them. Joe Musgrove will be out for 10 days due to tricep injury. The team has an average of 5.32 ERA and only made 63 runs this season. The Pirates lost 8 of their last 10 games, and scored 15 total runs in their last 3.

Trevor Williams was awarded the win allowing 3 earned runs in 5 innings. Colin Moran is their best player with 14 hits and 9 RBIs along with 7 home runs this season.

Kuhl is 0-0 in 1 start this season, and has an ERA of 2.00 with 12 strikeouts in 9 innings.

Pittsburgh Pirates vs Cincinnati Reds. MLB’s pick for game 2 will go to the Cincinnati Reds -190. The Pirates may have won in game 1, but with the way they are playing this season it’s questionable if they can produce a back to back win. Kuhl can get more play time as he will find his rhythm on the mound, while Gray is playing decent baseball in his 3 starts this season. The Pirates are struggling with their road trip, winning only 2 of their 13 games on the road. Cincinnati will win this match to a predicted score of 6-3.
