MLB Baseball Gambling Total:
The Arizona Diamondbacks and Pittsburgh Pirates will go head to head this Wednesday at PNC Park in a game which could draw some eyeballs with Tyler Gilbert on the hill who will look to bounce back off a rough outing last time out.
The Diamondbacks have really shown some grit recently going 7-4 in their last 11 games, although they will be looking for some revenge here losing the first game of this series in heartbreaking fashion.
This Arizona squad does come with a pretty decent batting lineup, and that batting lineup has only gotten better with the inclusion of rookie Daulton Varsho who hit yet another home run in the first game of this series.
The D-Backs offense now ranks 21st with 529 runs scored, so they may be able to get to whoever the Pirates decide to go with to give Tyler Gilbert a chance to pick up another win.
Tyler Gilbert was not all that great last time out, but that start was always going to be a let-down, as he was able to throw a no hitter in his first career start which is completely crazy and something we won’t see again for a very long time. He gets a good opportunity here against an unconvincing Pirates batting lineup, so it will be interesting to see how the young pitcher deals with some adversity.
The Pirates were able to put in a nice come from behind effort in the first game of this series, as they hope that can help set the tone for the rest of these games with the Diamondbacks and the rest of the season as a whole.
Brian Reynolds has been consistent all year for the Pirates, and nothing was different in the first game of this series, as his 7th inning triple was key to them securing that victory and he should play a big part here if the Pirates are to once again beat the D-Backs.
The pitching has really been rough this year for the Pirates, and it is a bit concerning that they have not listed a starting pitcher here, as they do not have many arms who can do the job even against a team like Arizona.

Free Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Pittsburgh Pirates MLB Prediction:
Tyler Gilbert obviously showed me enough in his first start to believe he can bounce back off of his last performance, and I think he goes at least 5 strong innings here which should put the Diamondbacks in a good enough pot to pick up this win.
