San Diego Padres
The Padres will send Joey Lucchesi to the mound on Sunday afternoon, hoping to put an end to their two game losing streak. Lucchesi went 7 strong innings Monday against the Brewers, allowing 0 runs while picking up his 6th win of the year. San Diego has given up 8 runs to the Pirates in the first two games of this series, so if Lucchesi can stay around his 3.74 ERA Sunday, they should be able to pull out the win on the road.
During their four game win streak prior to this series, the Padres averaged 7 runs per contest, while giving up only 5.25, but that number is highly inflated because of the 13 they gave up Sunday in Colorado. The four that they have given up per game in the first two games of this series is far closer to their season average of 4.79 runs against, which has kept them right around the .500 mark for the better part of the season.
The Pirates have a chance to sweep the Padres, and pick up their first three game win streak since they last won three in a row against the Padres last month in San Diego. Steven Brault will get the chance to claim his 4th win of the year, as he has looked extremely good in his last two outings, going six innings and giving up only two runs in each performance.
A win could move the Buccos into a tie for last place in the Central with Cincinnati, depending on how they do in their game with Milwaukee. Sitting only 5.5 games behind the Cubs heading into the midway point of the season, the Pirates really need to cut down on their runs against numbers, as they are averaging 5.44 runs against per game heading into Sunday afternoon.

Free San Diego Padres vs. Pittsburgh Pirates MLB Prediction:
This is a game where I am going to turn away from the recent betting trends and go the other way. Both of these pitchers have been lights out recently, and I don’t see any reason for that to change all of a sudden on Sunday afternoon. Both are still trying to solidify their spots in their respective rotations as well, so lousy starts should be at a minimum for the both of them.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: UNDER the Number
Take San Diego to win this game on the road, and for the total to go UNDER the number. Pittsburgh sure has had the Padres number this year, but I think that changes here.
