Pittsburgh finds themselves just 6.5 games back of division leader Milwaukee Brewers in the NL Central. Not too bad for a team that is eight games under .500 one week away from the All Star break.
The Pirates are 4-6 over thier last 10 games and were just swept at home in three games by the San Francisco Giants.
Pittsburgh will send Jameson Taillon (4-2, 2.97 ERA) to the mound. Since his return from a testicular cancer complication, Taillon has been solid. He is 2-1 in four quality starts.
His most recent outing being his best. Taillon lasted 6 innings, allowing seven hits and no runs in a 4-0 win against the Rays.
There really isn’t much to say about the Phillies. The team is 26 games under .500, 20 games back from division leading Washington Nationals and 4-6 over the last 10 games.
Rookie Mark Leiter Jr. (1-0, 4.20 ERA) will make his third start of the season.
In two starts this season, Leiter has pitched 11 innings, allowing 12 hits, four runs (all earned) three homer runs, one walk and 11 strikeouts so far for the Phillies.

The Pirates are bad on the road with a 16-23 road record. Philadelphia isn’t much better at home with a 14-20 home record. The Pirates will prevail in a close one.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: UNDER the Number
I like the number to go under 8.5 runs. This one should be a low scoring affair as both teams struggle to generate offense.
The Pirates rank 25th in the majors with 345 runs scored and the Phillies rank 29th in the majors with 312 runs scored.
MLB Free Score Prediction: Pittsburgh 3 – Philadelphia 1
