San Diego took the opener last night. No surprise there. That makes it five losses in a row for the Pirates.
Pittsburgh has been shutout in its last two games. Despite the efforts of Colin Moran this is a team that is going to struggle with scoring all-season long. They have no significant power threats.
The only positive from the start to the season for Mitch Keller is that he is striking out more than a batter per inning. More than half the time he is not even making it to the fifth inning though.
There is a lot to like about the Pittsburgh bullpen but how much that is an advantage with the rest of the team so weak remains to be seen. They are an interesting play once they get a lead though.
San Diego Padres
The Padres are finding their groove again, having won five of six. I keep waiting for their offense to come online though. They are in the 20s in most categories and getting bailed out by the staff, tops in ERA.
There is no starter listed here. It was supposed to be Ryan Weathers but he has a forearm concern and that has left things a little more open. It could definitely be a bullpen day.
The Padres bullpen is fourth in the Majors in WAR and leads with 10 wins already. This is one of the best groups in the Majors by far and they dominate too, striking out more than 11 batters per nine.

Free Pittsburgh Pirates vs. San Diego Padres MLB Prediction:
There are not a lot of teams and matchups I would bet without knowing the starting pitching situation. This is one of those though.
San Diego could just outslug the Bucs for the win, or shut them out again..
