Cleveland Indians vs Pittsburgh Pirates Predictions 8/20/2020

The Pirates are not doing so well since their return after 4 days of no baseball. They lost back to back games against the Indians and only won 1 game in their last 7. The squad made only 5 total runs in their last 3 games, and were held to only a single run in game 2 of this series. Both squads were tied and made 5 hits each, but Pittsburgh did not create enough offense to make more runs. Josh Bell put Pittsburgh on the board with 1 RBI in the final inning. Dovydas Neverauskas got the loss allowing 3 earned runs in 1 inning pitched. The Pirates are led by Josh Bell and Colin Moran with 15 hits and 10 RBIs each. Pittsburgh is just above Cleveland being one of the worst offensive teams this season with a .213 BAA which is 29th in the league. The Pirates are dead last in the National League with a 4-16 record, and are 5th in the NL Central Division. Trevor Williams will be on the mound for the Pirates in game 3. He is currently 1-3 with a 3.98 ERA with strikeouts this season.

Cleveland Indians vs Pittsburgh Pirates. MLB’s pick for the game will go to the Cleveland Indians -220. The Indians are the favorites in this matchup and it is clear that they own this pitching matchup. Offensive wise, both teams are struggling, but Pittsburgh is struggling with everything all season. They have the worst record in the entire Majors, and the team is not  improving at all. The Pirates only won 2 of their last 13 games and being in the last place in both offensive and pitching statistics, they might be bottom feeders the entire season. Prediction: Indians at 7-1.
