Pittsburgh Pirates vs Arizona Diamondbacks (By: Mulder)
Trevor Williams will start on the mound for the Pirates. The Rightie is 1-0 with a 2.59 ERA. However, he pitched worse than that > 6.29 K/9, 38.9 Gb%.
The Diamondbacks rocked Williams last year : 6.00 ERA in 9 innings versus Arizona.
For Arizona we will see RHP Luke Weaver on the mound. He is 1-1 with a 3.92 ERA but he pitched much better than that > 10.45 K/9, 1.80 BB/9, 53.4 Gb%. He is coming from a tremendous outing in Atlanta as he blanked the dangerous Braves and allowed just 4 hits > 1 BB, 9 K (!) in 5.0 innings at work.
He posted a 6.75 ERA in 12 innings at work last season against the Bucs. However, he pitched much better than that > 3.33 FIP (!).
The Diamondbacks are the best hitting team from the 7th inning. Yesterday they exploded also in the end by scoring 11 runs against a solid Pirates bullpen.
-Diamondbacks are 7-0 in the last 7 meetings in Pittsburgh.
Pirates are not hitting well as of late. In the last 7 days: .204 BA ( 26th ).
I will definteley take my chances with the Diamondbacks as a road dog for plus money.
