Pirates and Reds split a doubleheader on Friday. Saturday’s game will be between two veteran and right-handed starters with ugly numbers coming in.
Anthony DeSclafani’s five starts have lasted a total of 21 innings. He’s given up more than a hit an inning and walked nearly as many (11) as he has struck out (14).
What’s more is that his numbers through his first two starts were excellent (11 innings, no runs allowed). He’s given up 18 runs in 10 innings since.
The worst of those three starts since came against Pittsburgh, which got him for nine in two.
The Pirates didn’t score for the rest of that game and finished with nine runs in victory. They’ve only scored double-digits twice all season.
Jacob Stallings, a light-hitting catcher who came into this season with six home runs in 95 career games, leads the team in hitting at right around .300.
Trevor Williams, the scheduled starting pitcher, has made seven starts and given up more than three earned runs just once.
He’s given up plenty of hits — 41 in just over 34 innings. His strikeout-to-walk numbers are decidedly better than his counterpart’s, though.

Free Cincinnati Reds vs. Pittsburgh Pirates MLB Prediction: Pittsburgh.
DeSclafani will be out to tame a weak lineup that hit him hard the last time. He’ll certainly be better than he was a couple of weeks ago but there also isn’t much reason to believe he’ll be good.
Williams, meanwhile, can at least navigate tricky situations. He’s worth a shot at better than +130.
