Kuhl put in his worst performance of the year as he was tagged with his fifth loss against the Arizona Diamondbacks in a 3-9 loss. He could only go two innings giving up eight hits, eight earned runs, and two home runs while striking out two and walking one.
In 15 starts, Kuhl owns an 8.56 K/9, 3.44 BB/9, a 75% LOB%, and a high 1.56 HR/9. The end-result has been a 4.56 ERA and 4.75 FIP, while his .315 BABIP is right around his career average, so we shouldn’t expect too much improvement in his stats.
Pittsburgh has been slumping hard as they could only muster one win in their last six contests. During that span their lineup has been miserable as they are slashing .181/.241/.221 to go with six extra-base hits and eight RBI.
New York Mets
Matz was roughed up in his last outing in the high altitudes of Coors Field as the Rockies tagged him with his fifth loss of the season. He went 5.2 innings giving up eight hits, five earned runs, and one home run while he struck out six and walked two.
In 14 starts, the lefty owns a 7.99 K/9, 3.80 BB/9, 77.3% LOB%, and a high 1.52 HR/9. The end-result has been a solid 3.68 ERA, but once his fortunate .259 BABIP regresses, his ERA should fall more towards his 5.05 FIP.
New York just can’t catch a break as they’ve only won one of their past seven contests in the last week. During that span their lineup has been hitting the ball well as they are slashing .295/.369/.488 to go with 28 extra-base hits and 43 RBI.

Free Pittsburgh Pirates vs. New York Mets MLB Prediction: New York outlasts Pittsburgh
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Mets -120 & First 5 Innings UNDER 4.5
Chad Kuhl had a dud performance in his last outing, but he really hasn’t been terrible this season. The only problem is Pittsburgh’s lineup has been struggling mightily to produce offense, while New York may be hitting the best they have all year, thanks in part to playing in Colorado. Look for the home team to clinch the win.
