Pirates keep rolling

The Pirates claimed their 10th straight win on Monday in a 7-0 win over the Indians, chasing Kluber after just four innings. They have scored at least 6 runs in eight of the 10 wins. Pittsburgh is 52-49 overall and 23-25 on the road. Pittsburgh is putting up 4.54 runs per game on offense while allowing 4.50 per contest.

Joe Musgrove gets the start for the Pirates on Tuesday night. He has started nine games this year and has a 3-4 record with a 4.08 ERA and a 1.38 WHIP. Musgrove has logged 53.0 innings and has 50 strikeouts with 16 walks.

Indians silenced

The Indians were shutout for the second consecutive game on Monday in the 7-0 loss to the Pirates. The Tribe are now 54-45 overall and 31-20 at home. Cleveland is putting up 5.17 runs per contest while giving up 4.32 per contest.

Shane Bieber gets the start for the Indians tonight. He has started seven games this season and has a 5-1 record with a 3.53 ERA and a 1.34 WHIP. Bieber has recorded 42 strikeouts and eight walks through 43.1 innings of work.

MLB Betting Trends


The Pirates have won six straight interleague road games and they have won nine straight against winning teams.


The Indians have won six of Bieber’s last seven starts, but they are just 2-5 in their last seven interleague games.


The Indians have won when Bieber pitches, but they have done a good job of hitting for him. His last three starts have seen him give up four runs in each of the starts. I don’t think that is going to go well against a Pittsburgh team that is on fire at the plate right now.


The Pick: Pittsburgh Pirates +170
