It’s a National League Central showdown between two teams who will be missing the playoffs. The Cincinnati Reds and the Pittsburgh Pirates continue their series on Saturday at PNC Park.
The Reds have won five of the last eight games played between the two teams.
The Cincinnati Reds season has been filled with disappointment, and it doesn’t seem like they can ever match their bats and pitching up.
In their last three losses they have scored a total of two runs, and in two of the games they were shutout.
On the mound for the Reds is Tyler Mahle who will be making just his second start of his career. In his first start he went five innings and gave up four hits and three runs.
On the other side of this match up is the Pittsburgh Pirates who were in the race of the National League Central just a couple weeks ago, but their play has dropped off a lot since that time, and so has their playoff chances.
They come into this game having lost three in a row, and seven of their last ten games.
On the mound for the Pirates is Jameson Taillon who has a 7-5 record but a really high ERA of 4.75. His last start came against these Reds and he went four innings and he gave up five hits and two runs.
