The Diamondbacks will be on the road this Tuesday to take on a struggling Pirates team at PNC Park in what is a battle of two of the worst teams in the entire league.
The Arizona Diamondbacks are having a rough season for sure, but they have come alive in recent times winning 7 of their last 10 games with big performances from guys like Daulton Varsho who looks like he could be a nice find for this Diamondbacks team.
He proved that once again in the Diamondbacks last game against the Colorado Rockies, as he played hero hitting a 3 run home run in order to pick up an impressive 8-4 win. Maybe even more impressive for Varsho, is that he was only a single short of hitting for the cycle in that game and it will be interesting to see just what kind of numbers he can put up net year when he has a full season to rack up stats.
The big positive for the Diamondbacks is that they send Madison Bumgarner to the mound who is having a great run of form and that was especially true in his last game going 8 strong innings against a decent Phillies offense only allowing 3 hits and 1 run during that contest.
It has been more losses than wins for the Pirates lately, but they are coming into this game off the back of a series win against the Cardinals, as they took 2 games out of 3 against St. Louis.
The biggest concern for the Pirates post All-Star break has to be the batting, which is now very sporadic after they got rid of their best batter at the trade deadline and even before that they were one of the worst ranked offenses in the league.
Pittsburgh will counter Bumgarner with JT Brubaker this Tuesday, and that is not likely to end well for them, as Brubaker enters this game allowing 21 runs in his last 3 games and that kind of pitching will quickly make up for the deficiencies in this D-Backs offense.

Free Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Pittsburgh Pirates MLB Prediction:
These two teams are very even from an overall perspective, but the disparity in terms of the starting pitching is huge with Bumgarner much more likely to go deep here in comparison to Brubaker who is not having a good time of it lately.
I am also not a huge trends guy when it comes to handicapping baseball games, but it is also hard to ignore the fact that the Diamondbacks are 10-1 in their last 11 games at PNC Park.
