Since the Pirates had a game cancelled against the Marlins, they will finish above .500 no matter the result of the last two games. The Pirates play in a stacked National League Central, and were unable to stay in the race despite being a solid ball club. The Pirates have dominated the season series over the Reds, winning 13 of the 17 meetings, so at the very least they can finish the season by defeating a division rival and look to improve their roster in the coming months.
Clay Holmes will take the mound for the Pirates in the season finale. Holmes has a 1-3 record and has an earned run average of 7.25. Holmes has clearly struggled this season, but will have one final opportunity to finish the season strong and show he can be a starter for the Pirates long term.
The Reds will finish last in the National League Central for the fourth consecutive year dating back to 2015. Times are tough in Cincinnati as the Reds cannot seem to put together any kind of successful campaign. They have some talent such as, Scooter Gennett, but do not have the pitching to be able to compete with one of the better divisions in the MLB.
Sal Romano will take the mound for the final game of the 2018 season. Romano has pitched much of the second half coming out of the bullpen, but will make his 25th start of the season. Romano posts a record of 8-11 and his earned run average is 5.37. The young right-hand pitcher needs a good outing to show he can be a starter long term as this ball club looks to continue their rebuild.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Over is 6-0-2 in Romanos last 8 home starts.
- PIT are 9-4 in their last 13 overall.
