Free Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Washington Nationals MLB Prediction:
The Pirates are only 4-9 against left-handed pitchers this season and are 29th with just a .213 team batting average against southpaws this season.
The Pirates enter this series on a seven-game losing streak and have been a very poor road team this season.
Washington is a talented team, although they have underachieved this season. Either way I’ll take the Nats at home in the series opener.
