This NL matchup includes two teams that looked to be at the top in the preseason.
Arizona looks bad so far this year, and they are not living up to their hype.
The Pittsburgh Pirates are playing well this year, but can’t leap past the Cubs.
The Arizona Diamondbacks had a tough hit earlier in the year when they lost A.J. Pollock to a long term injury; he was arguably the best player on the roster.
They are led by Jean Segura in this early in the year.
Segura is hitting .316 with 18 extra base hits and 23 runs batted in early in the year. He is paced by Brandon Drury with a .300 average and 7 home runs.
Paul Goldschmidt is bringing the power on the Dbacks. He has hit a team leading 8 home runs and 26 runs batted in. Goldschmidt is also hitting .247 on this young year.
The Diamondbacks put Patrick Corbin to the mound to face the Bucs. Corbin is 2-3 on the year with a 3.99 E.R.A and 39 strikeouts. He was last in action against the St. Louis Cardinals in a win.
He threw 6.1 innings of work giving up 2 earned runs on 4 hits. He walked 4 batters but struck out 7. Corbin looks stay hot going into Thursday.
The Pittsburgh Pirates lineup is playing well so far this season. They are led by Starling Marte on the year. Marte is hitting .325 with 14 2 baggers and 16 runs batted in.
He is paced by Gregory Polanco. Polanco is hitting .307 so far with 17 doubles and 28 runs batted in, which leads this Pirates team.
The once MVP Andrew McCutchen is leading the team in home runs with 8, and is hitting .253 and has knocked in 20 runs.
The Bucs send their ace Gerrit Cole to the bump. Cole is currently 5-3 on the year with a 2.79 E.R.A and 39 strikeouts. He was last in action against the Colorado Rockies in a win.
He threw 7 innings of work and gave up 1 run on a solo home run he gave up. Cole did not strike out a batter and walked 1. Cole looks to get his season to keep on rolling.

Free Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Pittsburgh Pirates MLB Prediction:
I look for this game to be like the game on Tuesday, not very close.
The Pirates blew the doors off the Diamondbacks on Tuesday and I believe with the help of Cole, the Pirates will prevail in this one.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: OVER 7.5
Look for Cole to shut down this average Arizona lineup, and this Bucs lineup will roll the ball around on Corbin.
