Free Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Washington Nationals MLB Prediction:
As bad as the Pirates have been, it’s hard to believe Corbin is laying as this big a favorite at home. The Nationals’ left-hander has been a gas can this season, allowing at least 3 earned runs or more in 9 of his 13 outings.
Yesterday’s game was tied through the 7th, I expect the Pirates to bounce back here and find a way to win.
