Cincinnati Reds vs. Pittsburgh Pirates MLB Prediction:
The Reds have the best in the mound. But the Pirates already won a series at home against the Reds in April in four games. DeSclafani already knows what it is to lose against the Pirates.
The last game of that series in April, the Reds lost 7-5.

I don’t trust the Reds with Desclafani, despite being the best pitcher available for this game. What is certain is that this game will have the offensive factor for each team.
