San Diego Padres vs Pittsburgh Pirates 4/30/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The San Diego Padres will go against the Pittsburgh Pirates in MLB action in PNC Park, PA, on Saturday, April 30, 2022, at 6:35 PM ET. Despite not always having their best roster, the Padres continue to find ways to win.

 

All-star SS Fernando Tatis, Jr was sidelined all season due to an offseason wrist injury, and they recently placed two starting pitchers on the 10-day IL, Blake Snell and Mike Clevinger.

 

Luke Voit, the Padres’ first baseman who was expected to fill a power hole in their order, was placed on the 10-day disabled list on April 23rd due to biceps concerns and is yet to hit a home run this year.

 

Despite this, the Padres are one of the top teams in the National League, having the second most victories. Manny Machado had a terrific start, while 1B Eric Hosmer defied his naysayers by hitting .415 right away.

 

Yu Darvish earned his second win of the series on Friday night, giving the Padres their fourth straight victory and ninth in 11 matches. Darvish improved to 2-1 on the season after surrendering three runs on eight hits in a 7-3 win. He struck out five batters and walked one.

 

Darvish was helped out by the big ball, as both Ha-Seong Kim and Jake Croneworth hit home runs in the victory. Taylor Rogers picked up his eighth save of the year after pitching 1.2 innings.

 

  • The total went OVER in 5 of San Diego’s last 5 matches.
  • The San Diego Padres are 5-1 SU in their previous 6 matches.
  • San Diego is 4-1 SU in their last 5 matches against Pittsburgh.

San Diego Padres vs Pittsburgh Pirates Predictions 4/30/2022

 

After being swept by NL Central power Milwaukee this week, Pittsburgh hit a difficult patch. With the exception of one match in which the Pirates scored eight runs, the Brewers’ superb pitching staff shut down the Pirates hitters.

 

The Pirates struggled to score runs this season, going 0-5 when their opponent produced at least 5 runs. Bryan Reynolds, who signed a long-term contract shortly before the season began, struggled at the bat thus far.

 

So far this year, Reynolds has a .197 batting average and only three RBI. The Pirates’ pitching couldn’t hold up against the Padres’ batters on Friday night. After allowing four runs in just 3.1 innings of work, starting pitcher Zach Thompson fell to 0-3 on the season.

 

For the Pirates, who are currently on a four-game losing run, Daniel Vogelbach got two hits and two RBI.

 

  • The total went UNDER in 8 of Pittsburgh’s previous 11 matches.
  • The Pittsburgh Pirates are 1-5 SU in their previous 6 matches.
  • The total went UNDER in 4 of Pittsburgh’s last 6 matches against San Diego.

San Diego Padres vs Pittsburgh Pirates. The MLB pick for this game is the San Diego Padres. Manaea has the strongest overall stuff on the staff, but he has not completely demonstrated it since his 7-inning no-hitter in the opener.

 

The Pirates’ weak lineup might be ideal for another strong showing from the talented left-hander. This season, Brubaker did not go very deep into any games, and I anticipate that trend to continue in this game.

 

I think the Padres will score enough runs to win this game handily, even if they don’t score more than 5 runs. Manaea should have an easier time with the Pirates’ feeble bats and can pitch further into matches than Brubaker. The San Diego Padres will win to a predicted score of 6-5
