Chicago Cubs vs Pittsburgh Pirates Predictions 6/22/2022

 

The Pirates pulled together a three-game winning run after dropping 11 of their previous 12 games from June 7 to June 18.

 

The Pirates defeated the Cubs 19-2 in Oneil Cruz’s first two major league games, going 3 for 9 with five RBI. Cruz is a 6’7, 23-year-old shortstop who made an impressive MLB debut. Cruz hit nine home runs, scored 35 runs, and stole 11 bases in 55 AAA games this season.

With 22 RBI, four Pirates players are tied for first place on the squad. With a 4.45 ERA, the pitching rotation is ranked 25th, and the defense is tied for 15th with +7 runs saved.

 

On Wednesday, Jerad Eickhoff will make his MLB debut. He made six appearances last year and had a 0-2 record and an 8.69 ERA. Eickhoff had a 4-3 record and a 4.84 ERA in 13 AAA matches this season.

 

  • The Pittsburgh Pirates are 4-11 SU in their last 15 matches.

  • The total went UNDER in 6 of Pittsburgh’s previous 9 matches at home.

Chicago Cubs vs Pittsburgh Pirates. The MLB pick for this game is the Pittsburgh Pirates. Although Keegan Thompson has a strong lifetime record versus the Pirates, he does not last long in matches, and the Cubs’ bullpen and defense are among the worst in MLB.

 

The Pirates have a superior bullpen and their offense averaged 4.4 runs per game over their previous 10 games, even though Jerad Eickhoff is equally difficult to trust in this situation.

 

On the other hand, during their previous 10 games, Chicago only averaged 2.8 runs. I’ll support the pirate team if they have the momentum. The Pittsburgh Pirates will win to a predicted score of 5-2.
