This series has alternated back and forth, starting with Cincinnati winning the first game in extra innings. The Pirates bounced back to blow out the Reds in the second game; then Cincinnati guaranteed itself at least a split with a 7-2 win yesterday.
Ivan Nova will put his ridiculous numbers on the line Thursday afternoon before Pittsburgh goes back home to play the Brewers.
With a complete game in his last start in Miami, Nova now has as many CGs as he does BBs in a Pirates uniform, dating back to last season. The former Yankee has 22 strikeouts to 1 walk in 2017 and opponents are hitting .198.
So what do the Reds do?
Tim Adleman probably isn’t the answer, but he’s the Reds’ solution as of now.
His ERA is 4.70, but Adleman has actually been sneaky good, three starts into the season. His WHIP is 1.11 and he’s walked only 3 batters in 15.1 innings.
Joey Votto walked another couple times yesterday and has 5 walks in this series, so far.

Free Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Cincinnati Reds MLB Prediction: it’s all Nova.
He’s been one of the best pitchers in baseball for the last half a season, plus. He should take care of this Reds’ offense because he does such a good job of both throwing strikes and avoiding home runs.
