It’s a National League Central showdown on Tuesday evening at St. Louis. The Pittsburgh Pirates come to town for a three game series against the Cardinals.
The Cardinals have won the previous three games in the series between the two teams.
The Pittsburgh Pirates had quite the terrible start to the season, but they come into this series flying high. They just swept the Cubs at Wrigley Field for the first time since 2015.
They had great starting pitching all series and somehow cooled off the Cubs bats and that led to the sweep.
For the Pirates to sustain this success they need to get their bats going.
They have averaged 3.83 runs per game which is 24th in the Major Leagues. They don’t have a great starting rotation so it is crucial that they start scoring more runs.
St. Louis Cardinals
Thankfully for the St. Louis Cardinals there is the Toronto Blue Jays.
If it wasn’t for them they would be the worst team in baseball. Instead they are just the worst team in the National League with a 3-9 record, which is very surprising for a team many expected to make it to the playoffs.
All you have to do is look at their stats to find the problems.
They rank 26th in the Major Leagues in runs scored, and rank 28th in the Major Leagues in team ERA. A lot of their problems also come with their defense.
They already have 10 errors this season which is 26th.
