The Pirates have got nothing out of their offense through seven innings in LA. Kenta Maeda has been working and Pittsburgh is down 4-0, in danger of being swept out of Hollywood.
Scoring has been a problem for Pittsburgh, which is the major reason why Gerrit Cole is 1-3.
That’s because the Pittsburgh ace has been excellent this season. He’s posting a 1.05 WHIP with a 3.14 ERA but he’s lost 1-0 and 2-1 to go along with a number of low-scoring no-decisions.
Home runs are about the only problem Cole has had this season. He’s given up seven in seven starts, compare that to just nine walks.
All looks good in Arizona’s attempt to split their two-gamer with Detroit on Wednesday night. The Snakes are up 7-1 in the eighth after roughing up Matthew Boyd for eight hits in six innings.
Zack Godley is lined up for the win in that one after seven innings of one-run ball and Zack Greinke is lined up to start Thursday’s opener against the Pirates.
Greinke will get the opportunity to take on a floundering Pirates offense that can’t hit the ball out of the ballpark and is having trouble scoring at all of late.
Greinke has looked like a comeback candidate, a 3.09 ERA with a complete game in seven starts. He’s on a run of four straight quality starts.

Free Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Arizona Diamondbacks MLB Prediction: Cole pitches well, Pirates can’t score.
Arizona scores a lot of runs, which explains the 8.5 total. But the road to the under is clear: Greinke shuts the Pirates down because they can’t really score and Cole limits the DBacks.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Under 8.5 (+105)
It’s probably an Arizona win at home but the number and price on the under are more appealing.
MLB Free Score Prediction: Pittsburgh 2 – Arizona 4
