Musgrove was roughed up in his last outing, but was able to walk away with a no-decision as Pittsburgh would go on to beat the Milwaukee Brewers 7-6. He went 7.2 innings giving up seven hits, five earned runs, and one home run to go with five strikeouts and four walks.
In 53.0 innings of work this season, Musgrove owns a solid strikeout (8.49 K/9) to walk (2.72 BB/9) rate, while he has done a solid job containing the long ball (0.85 HR/9) and stranding base runners (73.2% LOB%). The end-result is a moderate 4.08 ERA and an even better 3.69 FIP meaning luck (.331 BABIP) and defense has hurt his ERA some.
Pittsburgh has managed to win their last three contests in the past week. During that span their lineup has been hot slashing .364/.400/.678 to go with 18 extra-base hits and 25 RBI.
Bieber was solid in his last outing as he was able to put in a quality start and picked up his fifth win of the season as Cleveland would go on to defeat the New York Yankees 6-5. He went seven innings giving up five hits and three earned runs while he struck out six and walked two.
In 43.1 innings of work this season, Bieber owns a solid strikeout (8.72 K/9) to walk (1.66 BB/9) rate, while he’s done a solid job limiting the long ball (0.83 HR/9) and stranding base runners (77.2% LOB%). The end-result is a solid 3.53 ERA and an even better 3.11 FIP meaning that luck (.362 BABIP) and defense has hurt his ERA some.

Free Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Cleveland Indians MLB Prediction: Pittsburgh edges out Cleveland on the road
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Pirates +148 & OVER 9.5 Runs
In the month of July, Bieber owns a high 5.21 ERA to go with a slash line of .290/.325/.480.
He also has been getting hit-up by lefties who own a slash line of .337/.394/.576 against him, and Pittsburgh can fill the top of their order with lefties. Musgrove does own a 4.97 ERA for the month of July, but he has fared well on the road where he owns a 1.38 ERA.
Pittsburgh has been on fire, and I’m going to ride them in interleague play where they own a 18-5 record against the opposition. Also rolling with the total going over the threshold with these two hot lineups.
