Rickenbach MLB *10* Top Play OVER 7 runs in Pittsburgh vs Chicago Cubs @ 7:05 ET - Although Jake Arrieta is having a fantastic season for the Cubs he did struggle with command of his pitches in his most recent outing. In his last two starts Arrieta has compiled a 3.75 ERA but has allowed 11 hits and 6 walks in 12 innings of work for a 1.42 WHIP. The Pirates will be seeing him for the third time this season and Pittsburgh comes into this game with plenty of confidence at the plate. That's because the Pirates have won 7 of their last 10 games and has averaged 5.4 runs per game in these 10 games. Look for Pittsburgh to stay hot at the plate in this one but they'll have some pitching issues of their own in this one. That's because J.A. Happ makes his debut in a Pirates uniform after coming over from the Mariners due to his slumping ways. I don't expect a change of scenery to magically transform Happ to top form again and that would be expecting a lot as he's winless in his last 3 starts with a 9.00 ERA and a 1.75 WHIP. Happ has walked 5 and given up 10 hits (including 3 homers) in his last 5 innings of work! The Cubs have won 6 of their last 7 games and have averaged 5 runs per game in those 6 victories. That said, take advantage of the low total posted on this game and look for runs early and often in this one. The over is 9-4 in the Pirates last 13 games against teams with a winning record. The over is 3-0 in the Cubs last 3 games against teams with a winning record. Big NL Central battle in this one and it's no pitchers duel! Play OVER 7 runs in Pittsburgh as a *10* Top Play Tuesday.
