It was a rough outing for Williams in his last start as he was knocked around by the Los Angeles Dodgers. He could only make in three innings giving up four hits, four earned runs, and one home run while striking out two and walking two.
Williams has been pretty average this season posting a 6.21 K/9, 3.04 BB/9, and 1.01 HR/9. The end result has been a mediocre 4.18 ERA and a 4.25 FIP, while he has been a tad fortunate owning a .265 BABIP.
Pittsburgh has been playing sub-par baseball in the last week as they could only win two of their six contests. During that time their lineup is slashing .231/.323/.333 to go with 12 extra-base hits and 25 RBI.
Buccholz was solid in his last start as he was able to put in a quality start against the San Francisco Giants. He was able to go six innings giving up seven hits, two earned runs, one home run while striking out seven and walking one
Buccholz resurgent season has gotten off to a nice start where he owns a solid strikeout (7.88 K/9) to walk (1.13 BB/9) ratio while he has been okay containing the long ball (1.13 HR/9). He currently owns a 1.88 ERA, but once his very lucky .215 BABIP regresses, his ERA should fall towards his 3.36 FIP.
Arizona has finally snapped out of their slump and has been playing winning baseball as they’ve won four of the last six contests. During that span their lineup is slashing .279/.355/.498 to go with 30 extra-base hits and 38 RBI.

Free Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Arizona Diamondbacks MLB Prediction: Arizona takes down Pittsburgh at home
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Diamondbacks -128
Both these teams have been going in different directions. Buccholz is always an iffy start, but I expect him to keep up his solid pitching for now against a Pittsburgh lineup that hasn’t been able to do much as of late. Plus Arizona’s hot lineup should find success against Williams.
