9/26/2014 7:10 PM MLB Baseball 957 Pittsburgh Pirates* -136 vs Cincinnati Reds
V Worley - R Listed M Leake - R Listed
Risking 2.00 To Win 1.47 (WINNER)
The Pirates have been one of the hottest teams in baseball for the month of September, going 16-4 since September 5th. They currently sit one game back of St Louis for the NL Central. You can bet that they will treat this just like a wild card game, as they try to avoid the dreaded 1 game playoff. They are starting Worley who has been virtually unhittable in September, the Pirates have won his last 4 starts, and he comes into this game with a September ERA of 2.55 and a WHIP of 1.08. He is coming off 8 innings of shutout baseball vs Milwaukee on the 21st and I like him to have another quality start today.
The Reds know their season is done, and Leake seems to have packed it in too. His September numbers are awful, for the month thus far he has pitched 21 innings, allowed 29 Hits and 19 runs, his WHIP is 1.68 and his Sept ERA is 7.71.
The Pirates have been putting up runs, as evident in last night's 10-1 win over the Braves, they have won 8 of their last 10 including 2 quality wins over Milwaukee, they have worked hard to have a shot at the Division lead and will be motivated and focused tonight. I like them to get the win vs a Reds team that seems to have packed it in.
Play the Pirates.
