The Pirates will start one of the toughest road trips left in their schedule as they start in Cincinnati and finish in Chicago. In order for them to consider claiming a last second playoff spot, a series road win is extremely important against these national teams.
Prior to this series, the Pirates were unable to stop the red-hot Los Angeles Dodgers as they were losers in three of four. The lone win against the Dodgers came with walk-off homerun in the 10th inning which stopped a no-hitter.
Pitcher Gerrit Cole will look to finish off August on the right foot, as he’s totaled a 1-3 record thus far in this month. No where near his perfect July with a 5-0 record to his name.
The Reds have been a hit or miss team this season, as there have been moments of hope, yet also moments of poor play. However their Thursday win against the Chicago Cubs showed why the Reds might finish the season on a decent note.
The bats were alive against Chicago with seven hits and four earned runs as it was an all-around great performance.
If the Reds want to continue their strong performance, they must get a great outing from first year pitcher Luis Castillo who has struggled all season long. With a 2-6 record, Castillo’s last victory came almost a month ago on July 30th.
It will all come down to the pitching for Cincinnati on Saturday.

Free Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Cincinnati Reds MLB Prediction: Cole ends August on the right foot.
Even though the Pirates have always struggled against the Reds on the road, Cole has over 4 days of rest and his ready to pitch a gem against a Reds team that is hit or miss.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Pittsburgh Pirates +110
I don’t trust the Reds pitching, especially with their Saturday starter in Castillo. The Pirates have more success with Cole on the mound anyway, and the odds look great.
