Today the Pittsburgh Pirates will try to end their 4-game losing streak when they face the Philadelphia Phillies at PNC Park. Pittsburgh has lost 9 of their last 11 games, though that record might be a bit deceiving considering that their losses haven’t been that bad, losing all of those by two runs or less.
The Phillies have won two games in a row and are currently sitting 3rd in the National League East division standings, 9.5 games behind first-place New York. The Phillies are also tied with the St. Louis Cardinals for the final Wild Card spot. They should feel confident coming into this game because they are 26-22 on the road.
Philadelphia is a pretty solid all-around team. Their offense ranks fifth with 4.7 runs per game, sixth with 127 home runs, and eighth with 61 stolen bases. On the mound, they are ninth with a 3.83 ERA.
The Pirates are sending Jose Quintana to the mound, who is making his 20th start of the season. The lefty carries a 3-5 record with a 3.70 ERA and a 1.28 WHIP over 97.1 innings pitched while striking out 85. Unfortunately for him, the Phillies also have a winning 16-13 record against southpaws. But not everything is bad news for the Pirates as they’ll be facing one the worst pitchers the Phillies have to offer.
Bailey Falter is making his 7th start and 11th appearance of this season for the Philadelphia Phillies. He is holding a 0-3 record with a 5.18 ERA and a 1.45 WHIP over 33 innings pitched while striking out 29. It’s hard to know what to expect from Falter, he has allowed an average of 1 home run per 3 innings over his last 5 starts, and he has not gone beyond 5 innings in a game this season.
