Godley was solid in his last outing as he put in a quality start and picked up his seventh win of the season. He went 6.2 innings giving up five hits, two earned runs, and one home run while he struck out eight and walked three.
In 14 starts, Godley has been up-and-down this season as he owns a 9.08 K/9, 4.42 BB/9 and a 1.28 HR/9. His .318 BABIP is a tad unlucky, but that should regress some at some point and we should see his high 4.77 ERA and 4.59 FIP diminish some.
Arizona has been playing sub-par baseball in the past week as they have won three of their seven contests. During that span their lineup is slashing .239/.327/.415 to go with 17 extra-base hits to go with 32 RBI.
Nova was solid in his last outing as he was able to put in a quality start and pick up his fourth win of the season against the Cincinnati Reds. He went six innings giving up five hits, one earned run off of a solo home run while he struck out three and walked three.
He won’t blow you away with strikeouts (7.12 K/9), but he does well with not giving up free bases (1.84 BB/9). His .307 BABIP is right around his career average, while his FIP of 4.16 is a tad under his 4.42 ERA indicating the defense has hurt him at times.
Pittsburgh has been playing winning baseball in the past week as they won four of their six contests. During that span their lineup was slashing .239/.306/.404 to go with 17 extra-base hits and 22 RBI.

Godley has had a rough time on the road as he owns a 6.53 ERA and a slash line of .279/.392/.438. He also owns a 6.32 ERA in the month of June. Nova has been inconsistent throughout the season, but he owns a 3.48 ERA at home and has been solid in the month of June where he owns a 1.54 ERA. I’ll back the hotter pitcher and the home team in this contest.
