The Pirates took it to the Diamondbacks on Tuesday and will look for a repeat performance when the two teams meet on Wednesday night inside PNC Park.
Arizona went out in the offseason and made a lot of moves and spent a lot of money to get pitching.
That however, hasn’t worked out thus far. The Diamondbacks sit with a team ERA of 4.59. Because of that, they find themselves in 4th place in the NL West.
This was the same story as 2015. The Diamondbacks couldn’t pitch, but they certainly could hit. Arizona ranks 8th with 4.57 runs per game and 10th with 53 homeruns.
Arizona will look to Rubby De La Rosa here to step up. De La Rosa sits .500 on the season at 4-4 with an ERA of 3.53. He’s been stellar over his last two starts allowing just 1 run in each start. However, his offense didn’t help him out in the previous one, as he earned a ND against the Giants.
The Pirates have seem a glimmer of hope in the NL Central with the Cubs struggling.
Pittsburgh took full advantage of the Diamondbacks pitching struggles and put up a 12 spot on them in Tuesday’s win. The Pirates had 4 three run innings as their offense continues to shine. Polanco played a giant role in that 12 spot as he had 5 RBIs. As a team, Pittsburgh had 17 hits.
Pittsburgh will send out Jeff Locke here in this one. Locke allowed 2 runs on 6 hits in 7.0 innings against Atlanta in his last outing. He’s struggled against the Diamondbacks in his career going 0-2 with a 6.87 ERA in 4 career appearances.

Free Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Pittsburgh Pirates MLB Prediction:
Locke’s struggles are very concerning in this spot.
However, the Diamondbacks have been a mess themselves as a team when it comes to pitching. Expect the Pirates to take advantage of that once again.
