Chen pitched a gem in his last outing as he put in a quality start while picking up his sixth win of the season in a 6-3 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays.
He went eight innings giving up just three hits and one earned run while he struck out seven and walked none.
In 114.1 innings of work this season, the lefty owns a mediocre 7.24 K/9 a decent 3.15 BB/9, a slightly high 1.34 HR/9, and a weak 69.7% LOB%.
The end-result is a high 4.64 ERA and a similar 4.55 FIP.
Miami has played mediocre baseball in the past week winning three of their six contests.
During that span their lineup is slashing .249/.315/.352 to go with 13 extra-base hits and 21 RBI.
It was a short outing for Nova as he was tagged with his ninth loss of the season in a 2-5 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals.
He could only make it 3.2 innings giving up six hits, four earned runs, and two home runs while he struck out one and walked two.
In 140.2 innings of work this season, the veteran owns a bleak 6.14 K/9, an excellent 1.86 BB/9, a high 1.54 HR/9, and an okay 73.5% LOB%.
The end-result is a mediocre 4.35 ERA to go with a high 4.71 FIP.
Pittsburgh has played solid baseball in the past week winning four of their six contests.
During that span their lineup is slashing .232/.269/.332 to go with 11 extra-base hits and 22 RBI.

Pittsburgh takes down Miami on the road.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Pirates -1.5 & Pirates OVER Team total
Nova has been a different pitcher at home where he owns a 3.30 ERA as compared to his 5.43 ERA on the road.
Pittsburgh has also won their last three contests by at least two runs when Nova faces Miami.
Chen has been on fire and is coming off maybe his best start of the season, so I expect some regression especially on the road where he owns a 9.35 ERA to go with a slash line of .325/.387/.632.
