Pittsburgh Pirates vs St. Louis Cardinals Pick & Prediction by Mike Dolan of ATSExperts.com

PITCHING MATCHUP: Pirates Jeff Locke (8-5, 5.13 ERA) vs Jamie Garcia (6-6, 3.84 ERA)

While the Chicago Cubs have clearly been the best team in the NL Central, and perhaps all of baseball, the Pirates and Cubs will still need to fight for 2nd place in the division.  A Wild Card spot may be within reach for both of these teams towards the end of the season but it’s one game a time and don’t look now but the Pirates are winners of 6 straight.

Tonight, the Cardinals host the Bucs in game 3 of this series and the Pirates have won both games heading into Wednesday.  Jeff Locke takes the mound for the Pirates and he has won his last 3 starts.  The Cardinals ushers Jamie Garcia to the mound who’s last start was one of his best.  Garcia allowed just four hits and one earned run over eight innings in a win against Milwaukee. That gem dipped Garcia’s season ERA back under 4.00.
Pirates are 5-0 in their last 5 games on grass.

Cardinals are 13-3 in their last 16 vs. National League Central.

Under is 4-1 in Pirates last 5 road games vs. a left-handed starter.

Under is 4-0-1 in Cardinals last 5 home games vs. a team with a winning record.

Pirates are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in St. Louis.

Free Betting Pick: Pittsburgh Pirates +144

The Pirates won six straight games and the games 1 and 2 of this series.  Look for Pittsburgh as underdogs to make it three straight against recently struggling Cardinals.  Pittsburgh Pirates win at great price +144.
