MLB FREE PICK: Take Pittsburgh. According to latest MLB trends, Pittsburgh is: 5-1 last 6 during game 2 of a series, 13-3 last 16 Wednesday games, 9-3 last 12 as a road dog and 7-2 in Liriano's last 9 starts. St. Louis is:2-9 last 11 as a favorite and 6-13 last 19 overall.

Pittsburgh sends lefty Francisco Liriano (12-5, 2.83 ERA) to the mound, who is coming off a very bad start against Colorado. He was pounded for 10 runs and 12 hits, but that's in Coors Field. Before that performance, he had won three straight games and seven of eight starts. He's also been dominant against St. Louis, owning a 2-0 record with a 1.93 ERA against the Cards lifetime. St. Louis hits just .237 against left-handers compared to .280 vs. right-handers. Shelby Miller (11-7, 2.89 ERA) goes for the Cardinals but he's coming off throwing just two pitches against the LA Dodgers on August 7. He was taken out after being hit on the throwing arm by a line drive. The Cards also may be without star outfield Matt Holliday (ankle), who is hitting .293 with 15 home runs. Holliday suffered an ankle sprain on Tuesday after slipping on a base. Miller has lost both outings against the Pirates this season. Pittsburgh rebounds to take this game.
