Pitching Matchup

PITCHING MATCHUP: Pirates RH Joe Musgrove (5-7, 3.56 ERA) vs. Cardinals RH John Gant (5-5, 3.56)

Musgrove had a string of five straight quality starts come to an end Friday at Milwaukee, which got to him for four runs in four innings. 

Gant lasted a season high-tying seven innings while allowing one run in a no-decision at Colorado on Saturday. It marked the seventh time in his last eight starts that he has yielded two earned runs or fewer.

Hot Trends

Pittsburgh is 3-8 in the last 11 meetings.

The last three meetings have resulted in 7 or fewer runs scored.  This has occurred in six of the last ten games between these two teams.

Free Pick

We will be on the UNDER 8 here as these two starters have been outstanding of late and both are coming off outings where they did not win.
