Chicago Cubs vs Pittsburgh Pirates Predictions 4/13/2022

 

Pittsburgh was rained out on Monday, giving them an unanticipated additional day of rest and sending them into Tuesday’s game fresh off a road victory against the Cardinals. With a 1-2 record, the Pirates were in fourth place in the NL Central, one match behind the Cardinals and Cubs for first place.

 

Diego Castillo (2 runs) and Michael Chavis (run, 4 RBI) each had 3 hits against St. Louis on Sunday, while Jake Marisnick (RBI) and Ke’Bryan Hayes (run, RBI) each had two. Chavis (his first) hit a grand slam to help the Pirates’ offense get going.

 

Zach Thompson earns his first start of the year for the Pirates, as he makes his club debut in this game. Last season, he pitched in 26 games with the Marlins, 14 of which he started, earning a 3-7 record with a 3.24 ERA, 1.213 WHIP, 28 walks, and 66 strikeouts in 75 innings. In this game, Thompson earned his third career start against the Cubs.

 

In those outings, he’s 0-1 with a 0.90 ERA, 0.70 WHIP, 3 walks, and 10 strikeouts in 10 innings. Thompson is pitching at PNC Park for the first time, in his 27th big league appearance and 15th start.

 

  • The Pittsburgh Pirates are 1-4 SU in their previous 5 matches.
  • The total went OVER in 7 of Pittsburgh’s last 9 matches against the Chi Cubs.
  • The Pirates are 2-4 SU in their last 6 matches at home.

Chicago Cubs vs Pittsburgh Pirates. The MLB pick for this game is the Chicago Cubs. Pittsburgh won for the first time on Sunday before being rained out on Monday, allowing them to reorganize their pitching staff.

 

JT Brubaker was supposed to make his second start of the season in this race. Due to the rainout, he was moved to Thursday’s game against Washington.

 

Hendricks had his highs and lows with the Pirates during his career, but he was particularly impressive on Opening Day against the Brewers. Having a head start on knocking off the rust also works to his advantage.

 

In their three-game series with the Brewers to begin the year, the Cubs put up some solid offensive numbers. You have to give the edge to the lads from the north side of the Windy City here since they have an edge at the dish and on the bump. The Chicago Cubs will win to a predicted score of 4-3.
