PIRATES @ GIANTS TUESDAY NIGHT *TOP PLAY*
Pittsburgh vs. San Francisco,
09/10/2019 21:45 EDT,
Score: 4 - 5
Money Line: -122 San Francisco
The Pittsburgh Pirates rallied for four runs in the ninth inning to earn a 6-4 win. I expect the home team to bounce back here at Oracle Park Tuesday night.
The Giants hand the ball to Johnny Cueto for his first start of the season after recovering from Tommy John surgery. Cueto was 3-2 with a 3.23 ERA in 2018 and he has dominated Pittsburgh over his career with an outstanding 2.19 ERA in 30 starts. He might be rusty, but considering his career numbers against Pittsburgh I still like the Giants.
As for Pirates starter Mitch Keller (1-3, 8.18 ERA), the 23-year old rookie has been lit up for six or more runs in four of seven starts before getting knocked out early when catching a line drive off the bat in the second inning his last time out.
Pirates are 2-6 in Kellers last 8 starts. Giants are 12-4 in Cuetos last 16 home starts vs. a team with a losing record.
10* play on San Francisco Giants.
