Pittsburgh Pirates vs St. Louis Cardinals. MLB’s pick for the 2nd game of the day is the St. Louis Cardinals -150. It’s hard to side with both teams after what the starters are putting up this season. It’s even harder to side with the Pirates who have done nothing but find ways to lose in all of their games. They won the 1st game in this series but it’s really unlikely that they get straight wins with their problems with consistency. They were swept for 4 games against the Reds who also struggled all season long in the offense. The Cardinals have a 10-2 record in their last 12 games in PNC Park. The Cardinals win to a predicted score of 7-1.
