San Diego Padres: Nothing is clear for today.
The Padres have serious problems, this season at home they have not won more than 18 games and they suffered 23 defeats, that leaves them with an effectiveness of only 43.9% at home. Despite all the problems, the Padres have won six of the last 10 games at home, and June is one of the best months the team has had at home. In the last 3 series, the Padres have won two, one against the Reds 2-1 and Braves 2-1.
Eric Lauer opens the game with the Pirates, Lauer has not had a bad start to the season, actually he has done well, 3 wins and 4 losses with 5.05 ERA and 1,754 WHIP. It is his first year as a professional, with only 23 years has a promising future ahead. The Padres are scoring 4.07 runs per game, but due to defensive problems they are allowing up to 5.02 runs to the visitors.
Pittsburgh Pirates: 8 games lost is a nightmare
The Pirates have no way to get ahead, 17 wins and 21 losses, but the Pirates got off to a good start the season on the road, they won 4 games in a streak and 7 out of 10 during April, but after that date the Pirates suffered a losing streak of 8 games, were 2 sets of four games each, one against the Phillies and one against the Nationals.
Joe Musgrove could be the Pirates’ savior today, but he is unlikely to be able to do anything against the Padres, as the Padres want to win and Musgrove has only 2 wins and 3 losses, 4.59 ERA and 1,410 WHIP. The Pirates are scoring only 4.07 runs per game, 7.73 HITs and 1.76 homeruns. They score, but allow too many runs, above average.
