Pittsburgh Pirates vs San Diego Padres 5/29/2022 Picks Predictions Previews


The Pittsburgh Pirates will meet with the San Diego Padres in MLB action in Petco Park, CA, on Sunday, May 29, 2022, at 4:10 PM ET.


The Pittsburgh Pirates are on the road and want to improve on their 7-11 record on the road heading into this series. Coming into this road trip, the Pirates went 4-6 in their previous ten matches, although they did close their last homestand with a 10-run outburst.


Since being called up from the minors less than a month ago, rookie outfielder Jack Suwinski was a welcome power source. Suwinski hit five home runs and drove in 11 runs for the Pirates since his debut while batting just.188.


The Pirates received a strong start from Jose Quintana on Friday night and built a 3-0 lead in the sixth inning before the bullpen let them down in a 4-3 defeat. Pittsburgh’s current record is 18-26, with a 3-7 record in its previous ten matches.


Suwinski’s power will be a welcome addition to a Pirates lineup that ranks 25th in home runs per game, 27th in slugging percentage, and 28th in runs scored per game.


On Saturday, Brubaker, a hard-luck starter, is sent to the mound. Brubaker’s pitching numbers were decent, despite the fact that he hasn’t won a game since August. He pitched 42.2 innings while surrendering only 37 hits, leading the club in strikeouts and strikeouts per 9 innings. However, in his previous three games, the Pirates were shut out twice and only scored one run in the other.


  • The total went UNDER in 4 of Pittsburgh’s last 6 matches on the road against San Diego.
  • The Pittsburgh Pirates are 3-6 SU in their last 9 matches against the Padres.
  • Pittsburgh is 2-4 SU in their last 6 matches on the road.

Pittsburgh Pirates vs San Diego Padres Predictions 5/29/2022


After going 7-2 on their previous road trip, the Padres returned home and dropped two of three matches against the Brewers.


The Padres are 17-7 on the road and 11-9 at home in the season entering this matchup. With the return of previous Cy Young Award winner Blake Snell to the lineup, the Padres pitching staff is rounding into form. With 23 quality appearances in 44 matches played entering this series, the Padres led MLB in quality starts.


The Padres bats were silent in game 1 of this series on Friday night, and they trailed 3-0 in the sixth inning when DH Luke Voit hit a three-run home run to tie the game. In the eighth inning, Will Meyers singled home the go-ahead run, and the Padres won 4-3.


In comparison to far more well-known staffs in New York and Los Angeles, the Padres quietly assembled the strongest starting five in baseball.


Yu Darvish, while no longer the swing-and-miss pitcher of his peak, rediscovered his form after a shaky start and is tied for second on the team in quality starts.


Sean Manaea, a lefty acquired in a trade with Oakland, tops the team in strikeouts, while Joe Musgrove, the team’s Saturday starter, tops the staff in quality starts. Musgrove tops the squad with five victories after going 8-for-8 in quality appearances this year. He has the sixth-best ERA in MLB and the eighth-best WHIP.


  • The total went UNDER in 4 of San Diego’s last 5 matches.
  • The Padres are 8-4 SU in their previous 12 matches.
  • The total went UNDER in 14 of San Diego’s previous 20 games at home.

Pittsburgh Pirates vs San Diego Padres. The MLB pick for this game is the San Diego Padres. This matchup is a study in contrasts: Joe Musgrove is yet to lose a game this season, while JT Brubaker is yet to win. Musgrove made eight great starts in eight games, while Brubaker only made one.


Brubaker’s offense scored three runs in his past four matches, while Musgrove’s offense scored 17 runs in his last four appearances.


Musgrove will struggle against the Pirates’ below-average lineup, especially if he keeps the ball down and gets ground ball outs. In his sole start against Pittsburgh this year, Musgrove kept the Pirates to just one run in a 7-inning victory, while Brubaker was hammered for 5 hits and 3 runs in five innings of work in his only appearance versus SD.


The San Diego Padres will win to a predicted score of 7-5.
