Chad Kuhl made 14 starts as a rookie last year. The Pirates won his first six starts, then went just 3-5 in his last eight.
Kuhl was worse over that 3-5 stretch but not markedly. As wins go, it didn’t all have to do with his performance.
Something he was able to do was consistently get through five or six innings and give up two or three runs. That’s a recipe to have your team in the mix for a win every time you pitch.
Keep an eye on Mookie Betts’ health. He’s sick right now and wasn’t in the lineup on Wednesday night.
With a quick turnaround for a Thursday afternoon game, it’s very possible he’s out of the lineup again.
Boston Red Sox
Eduardo Rodriguez is sort of the opposite kind of pitcher Kuhl is.
With Rodriguez, you often know early what kind of night it’s going to be, unless he blows it up right in the middle of a start. He can be overwhelming to opposing batters, or just not have it at all.
He’s really a guy I stay away from unless I can fade him as a big favorite or get behind him as a dog.
This would be a fade spot for me because he is such a big favorite (five cents cheaper than Sale was on Wednesday) and Boston has this bug going around the clubhouse.
As we stand now, both Sale and Taillon have gone seven shutout innings in game two.

Free Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Boston Red Sox MLB Prediction: Pittsburgh eeks out a win.
Maybe the Bucs get one big inning against Rodriguez and Kuhl does his thing for five innings or so. Neither bullpen is great so we could get some back and forth scoring late.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Pittsburgh +145
Simply a decent number to take, if I’ve got to take one.
