The Pittsburgh Pirates are trying to avoid finishing with a losing record for a 20th straight season. At 73-72 on the year, they have an excellent chance of doing so with only two weeks remaining.
I know the Pirates have struggled of late, but the fact of the matter is that they are only three games back of the final wild-card spot in the National League. This team will be motivated to make one final push.
Kevin Correia has been respectable this season, going 10-9 with a 4.29 ERA. He has posted a 3.31 ERA in his last three starts, and I look for him to shut down this weak Cubs’ line-up tonight. Chicago starter Travis Wood is 2-5 with a 4.86 ERA in 11 home starts this season.
The Pirates are 8-1 in Correia’s last 9 starts vs. National League Central opponents. The Cubs are 2-10 in Wood’s last 12 starts overall, including 0-6 in his last 6 home starts. Bet the Pirates Monday.
