The Pittsburgh Pirates and Cincinnati Reds were washed away in their 2nd game of the series and will see both starters get pushed back here for Wednesday’s affair.
The Pirates were a Wild Card participant last year with rather ease, but things this year will be a little tougher on them and they’re certainly learning that.
Pittsburgh sits at 2.0 games above the .500 mark, but are 8.0 games back of the red hot Cubs for first in the NL Central. Right on their heels is the Cardinals just 1.0 game back.
Pittsburgh fell in the series opener as the manufactured just 2 runs and left the tying run stranded on 3rd in the top of the 9th. It’s been rare to see Pittsburgh struggle on the road offensively, as they average 5.50 runs per road game.
Pittsburgh will push back and start Juan Nicasio here. The RH has been a part of every decision, at 3-3 on the season. Throughout those 6 starts this year, he’s alternated wins and losses.
The Reds didn’t have many hopes coming into this year. They shipped away many of their veterans this offseason and were looking to rebuild for the future.
They’ve gotten off to an expected slow start, going just 14-19 through the first month plus and are 11.5 games back in the division. They did manage to grab a win in the series opener, behind Joey Votto and Tucker Barnhart hitting solo home runs to tie and then take the lead in the game.
The Reds will send out Alfredo Simon, who does come in off his best start of the year, but has still really struggled. Simon allowed 3 runs in 7.2 innings of work as he earned the win against Milwaukee.
