Arizona Diamondbacks vs Pittsburgh Pirates (By: Mulder)

ACE Greinke will start on the mound for the Diamondbacks. Started the season shaky but still he has a 3.16 ERA with solid stuff: 9.00 K/9, 1.26 BB/9 (!).

As of late though he has been lights out. In the last 30 days he is 3-0: 1.34 ERA> 1.07 BB/9, 0.00 HR/9, 46.6 Gb%,

He is 9-4 against the Bucs in his career with a 4.17 ERA.

However, he faced them 3 weeks ago in Pittsburgh and he pitched 7 scoreless innings: 1 BB, 7 K.

For Pittsburgh Archer will start on the mound. The former Rays ACE is a big talent and i like his stuff but he 1-2 with a 4.33 ERA>4.00 BB/9, 9.67 K/9 . And he pitched even worse than that as he totally got rocked in his last 2 outings where he allowed 9 runs.

He did not pitch for more than two weeks due to an injury.

In his career against the Diamondbacks:

2013: 5.40 ERA> 1.80 WHIP in 1.2 innings pitched.

2016: 4.50 ERA> 1.33 WHIP in 6 innings pitched.

-Pirates are 3-13 in the last 16 meetings.

Hence backing the D-Backs.
